Frequently Asked Questions


How do I register for this semester?

Registration is now open all year ’round.

  1. Complete the Gelio Edhellen! 100 course.
  2. Go to the Available Courses page.
  3. There will be a button next too the Gellio Edhellen! 101 course labeled “Click to Enroll.” Click it.
  4. That’s it! Then you just have to wait for me to accept your registration.


How much do the lessons cost?

The lessons are free, on their own. To access the teach-led courses you’ll need to have a Paid Membership, which is $20 a month.


How to tell if you’re a student:

Check the Available Courses page, in the column that says “Status.” For the Carpho Edhellen! and Teitho Edhellen! courses, you can sign up whenever you want and you will be immediately registered. But, for the Gelio Edhellen! courses, I have to accept you by hand so there may be a delay by a few days.


Where to find your homework:

Your homework will be listed in each lesson.


How to turn homework in:

When you open up an assignment, it’ll have a way to submit your answers – either through uploading a file or copy+pasting the text into the submission box. I prefer PDFs, because I can comment and annotate those easily. If you need a way to make them, here is a freeware program that I use: CutePDF.


Weekly Schedule:

Before Monday: Study, practice, do the exercises, chat with fellow students or with me if you have questions, and finish your homework. If you will be late turning in your homework, let me know through a PM.

Monday-Wednesday: Turn in the first draft of your homework. I’ll be correcting it and sending it back to you soon after you submit it. Unless things go really wrong on my end, you can expect to get your corrected homework back within a day.

Tuesday-Sunday: Redo the questions that you got wrong, and turn in them in as soon as possible. Then I will correct your homework again, and send it back to you. You will redo the remaining questions and send it back to me. This process continues until you have all of the questions 100 percent correct.

Wednesday: If you haven’t turned in your homework yet, I will remove your name from the roster. (This gets considerably more lax the more lessons you complete. If you’re still with us by Lesson 4 – you can fall behind the class up to two weeks before I delete you.)


Semester Schedule:

Barring conventions and other events, they will always start on the first Monday of the month, and end on the last Sunday of the month. Odd-numbered months class will be in session, and Even number months  will be vacation!

Schedule for Carpho Edhellen!, Teitho Edhellen!, and Gelio Edhellen! 100

The Carpho Edhellen!Teitho Edhellen!, and Gelio Edhellen! 100 courses can be done at any time, on your own schedule. None of them requires input from me.


Student Advancement

You must complete the Carpho Edhellen! course before you can advance to any other course. Gelio Edhellen! 100 is required to enter the teacher-led Gelio Edhellen! 101 course.

The Gelio Edhellen! 101 course takes 7 months  to complete, January-July.


I’ve been deleted from the Roster. What now?

Don’t worry! You are not black-listed from the website. Stuff comes up, that’s how life is. You can register for classes again. You will be starting at the beginning of the course that you dropped out of in the next semester.


Stuff happened, and now I know I won’t be able to keep up with the class. What do I do?

Click the “Un-enroll from this course” link on the courses page. Then send me a message letting me know you’re dropping out of the class. Include in the message whether or not you’ll be returning for the next semester to try again. If you’re returning to try again, I won’t purge your records, and you can start on the course you had left off on. If not, or if you’d like to start again from the beginning, I’ll purge your records, giving you a clean slate to start over again.

Returning students don’t have to worry about taking a place from a newly registering person or ending up on the wait-list.


How do I join the Discord chatroom for the class?

Click this link. Login to your Discord account. Done! Now you can chat with your fellow students, get real-time help, and learn about the developments happening to the website while they’re being dreamed up.
