What information do you collect about me? What is it used for?
We collect your name, email address, and your work on NanoCamp activities. We will use your email address to send you updates during NanoCamp. We may ask for your permission to use anonymized samples of your work. We may ask to use your feedback about NanoCamp in promotional materials or research. Learners can chat with instructors through a platform called Intercom. Your contact information will not be shared with any third parties.
When can I work on NanoCamp activities?
NanoCamp is self-paced, so you can work on the activities at any time. Some activities will still be available after the program ends. In addition to self-paced content, our team will host NanoCamp events. These are optional, virtual activities that happen at set times. Each event will be offered at different time slots to accommodate learners' schedules.
How is work graded?
Mimir Classroom provides automated feedback on your work. Some activities are graded on-demand, others are submitted for later feedback. In addition to automated feedback, learners may receive additional feedback from a human instructor, usually for kudos or for situations when the automated feedback was insufficient.
Learners do not need to achieve a certain score to move on. Instead, learners receive advice on how to self-regulate and decide whether or not to pursue more review before moving on.
What happens if a learner falls behind?
NanoCamp is self-paced and we expect that learners will set different learning goals. Each lesson includes reviews where learners who are struggling can request more help. Some NanoCamp events require learners to have reached a certain level in the program to participate. If there is a large enough group of learners who are interested in the event but do not yet qualify, we can schedule an encore event later in the program.
Will I have access to NanoCamp materials after the program ends?
The reference material for NanoCamp will be available online for free after the program ends. Learners will be able to review their work and access their code after the program ends as well, but are not able to get additional feedback.
What do I get for completing NanoCamp?
NanoCamp is not accredited for school credit or certifications, but you can still learn a lot! There are four levels of mastery that learners can achieve during NanoCamp: the Nanobelt, the Kilobelt, the Megabelt, and the Gigabelt. Based on the belt you achieve during the program, you will receive different recommendations on how to continue learning after NanoCamp.
