Sept 2017 - Community 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.
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?
Exercises will be posted and pinned to the #exercises channel on Monday evenings.
This will make it easy for you to view them at any time, by clicking the “pin” icon in this channel.
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.
