Each module has a set of links for YouTube video classes. After scrutinizingly watching each video, you have to write a summary note covering the salient points. You have to send us the summaries after completing each module. Also, below each YouTube video there is an area to post your comment. Every time you watch a video, you have to post a brief comment about the content of the video. By doing so we will know that you have watched the video. After you have watched the first module, you will proceed for second module and so on in a similar fashion.
 
Assessment:
After you have completed all the modules:
Step 1: You will submit summary notes of all videos as a .zip file.
Step 2: You will appear for an online multiple choice question (MCQs) assessment. This assessment done at the end of the course will comprise multiple-choice questions that will test understanding, not memory. So the questions won't be of the type "Who was the father of Ghatothkacha?" but of the type "Why did Bhishma take a vow of celibacy?" with five possible reasons as the multiple choices. You can prepare your notes accordingly. 

Scoring system: 
The marks for the entire course is distributed as follows.
Summary notes : 30%
Multiple choice question: 70%
A student will be considered to have passed the module if he gets at least 60% marks. If somebody has scored less than 60%, he will be given a second chance. Of course that will be a different exam.
 
Certification:
Once you have passed the exams, an e-certificate will be sent to you within one month by Bhakivedanta academy for culture and education (BACE, ISKCON Chowpatty).
