June 2017 - Slack Exercise Schedule

Welcome to Smartly! Here’s the exercise schedule for the duration of your program. The schedule serves as a guide to help you anticipate upcoming exercises, and to revisit exercises if you so choose.

About Exercises

Exercises are designed to complement what you’re learning in Smartly courses. They are a useful jumping off point to help you interact with fellow students.

Where Can I Find Exercises?

Each week, exercises will be posted and “pinned” in Slack. This will make it easy for you to view them at any time. This schedule will note which channel each exercise is "pinned" to: to find it, go to that channel and click the pin icon.

You can also search “New Smartly Exercise!” in your Slack window. 

What’s Involved in Exercises?

In an exercise, you’ll typically be asked to respond to an article or detailed scenario. In a case study, you’ll be asked to place yourself in the role of business decision-maker.

Do Exercises Affect My Grade?

With exercises, you can improve your grade and work towards an honors degree through participation.
