    Why learn in small groups?
    Learning online should not mean learning alone. Just like in high-school or college, collaborating with classmates and participating in class discussions of the course content are a fundamental part of learning. By taking the course with a small group of classmates, students benefit from the experience and perspectives of their fellow students, as well as from the guidance of a mentor.
    How can Mentive’s live classes be so affordable?
    The best learning experience can only be achieved with a great platform, carefully crafted course materials, and the best mentors. We never compromise on any of those. By teaching in small groups, we are able to share the costs of running each class among several students, resulting in a very low tuition fee per student.
    Why is Mentive supporting this course?
    Mentive supports only the most rigorous online courses, for which live interactions with classmates and an experienced mentor would add the highest value for students. Our academic team, led by UC Berkeley Professor Armando Fox, builds a custom curriculum for each course, specifically designed to maximize our students’ chances of passing the course and achieving their learning goals.
