Micro-courses are short courses ranging from 15 minutes to multiple weeks that teach you specific and useful skills related to designing and building your projects. Students can sign up using the links below.

After you've signed up, visit your Canvas account to find the course material. Upon completion, the micro-course is added to your Training Hub transcript, which you can view on the University of Minnesota's Training Hub website.

Sign up for a micro-course listed below, starting with the Orientation, which is required before taking the other micro-courses. More courses are being developed each semester, so check back for more options.
