What are Mentive sections?
Taking an online course often means watching recorded lectures and researching everything that you don’t understand on your own after trying to get some help on course forums. Mentive sections are designed to bring more structure to your learning process, guide you through the course, help you each time you feel lost in the material and turn online learning from a one-way monologue into a collaborative discussion.
Sections on Mentive are weekly interactive online meetings, in which the course material is further practiced and discussed. Each section is taught by an experienced mentor. Students can ask questions, watch live examples and interact with their classmates in order to really learn the topics at hand.
The sections are available in various time zones and languages, so that you can find the one that works best for you.
How many live meetings are there per course?
The number of meetings varies per course. Visit a course page on Mentive to find out how many live weekly meetings are offered for that course
Can I join only some of the live meetings?
When joining a section on Mentive, you get access to the full set of weekly meetings. While you do not have to attend all of them, we highly encourage you to do so. Students who miss a meeting will not be able to attend a make-up session.
Does joining a section cost money?
Yes. Charging a fee for joining a section allows us to attract experienced mentors to teach live meetings and be available to answer your questions in real time.
Who are the mentors who teach sections on Mentive?
Mentors are professionals in the fields they are teaching. Their expertise comes from education or work experience, or both. Each potential mentor goes through a rigorous assessment and is tested on both the knowledge and the ability to teach. We require them to be highly familiar with the course content and structure. Only about 5% of applicants are accepted to be mentors and can offer their section on the platform.
Can I become a mentor?
Definitely. If you are interested in teaching a course we support, take a look at the application and requirements to become a mentor.
How big is the class for each section?
Class size on Mentive is up to 25 students. This size allows the mentor to provide personalized attention to each student, and lets students benefit from participating in live discussions with their classmates.
