Druid Course: Topics

Druid Course

Druid Course

Welcome to the Druid course, the third of three grades in the Grove of Dana: Online College of Druidism. To begin the course, make sure to read the instructions below carefully.

If you enrolled in this course then you are probably familiar with the way the Bardic and Ovate course was run; this course will work similarly. As you read each chapter you will be given one or two assignments to complete based on your readings and practice involved with the topic. The readings and the details to certain practices are all in the Druid Course Handbook which you can download in the link below. 

 

COURSE DOCUMENTS

Below you can download all the necessary course material. The course documents are PDF- files, for which you will need Adobe Reader to open them. If you do not already have it, you can download it for free:

HOW TO GET STARTED?

Download the document and audio file above, and start with reading the Druid Course Handbook, and write the assignments for each chapter. You can upload your assignments below in the relevant lesson block for the chapter you're working on. You work your way through the course this way until you have completed all the assignments. You will be assigned a mentor, who will grade your assignments and give feedback where and if needed; you will need to wait until the mentor has graded you until you can continue to the next lesson block. You can find the name of your mentor by clicking "My Mentor" in the Main Menu (side column).

Although you are free to go as fast or slow as you like, we encourage you to take at least a week with each assignment. This will allow you to spend some time with the content of the lessons, contemplating and engaging them intellectually as well. For this reason there is a minimum time limit of six months on this course.

There are three ways in which you can submit your assignment:

  1. You can write your assignment in a text document and upload it in the relevant lesson below. Please use regular formats such as .txt, .rtf or .doc. The program Microsoft Word is most commonly used.
  2. You can use the online text editor found in each lesson after clicking "add submission". When ready, click "save changes" and your assignment will automatically be submitted to that particular lesson.
  3. You can use our "Online Text Editor" (see "Main Menu" on the side), which will load in your browser window. This editor will only let you create NEW documents, not load and change existing ones. You will then need to save the document to your computer, and upload it to the relevant lesson block.

COURSE DISCUSSION AND SUPPORT

The Student Forum (see Main Menu on the side) can be used to discuss the course and assignments with other students in this course. The forum is not intended to get technical support for the college or the website in general.

If you are in need of technical support in regards to the college, please only use the "Support Helpdesk". We can't guarantuee you will receive a response if you try to contact us with technical questions in other channels (email, forums, private message, activity wall, ...).
