Glad you asked.
In a course you work on exercises assigned by your online instructor, to get started on a script, polish your skills or begin to learn the fundamentals of the craft. Each week the instructor e-mails you a tutorial on a particular topic, and provides online handouts and “homework.” You submit your assignments by e-mail for his or her individual feedback. By the end of the course, you should be started on a script — which, if you want, you can then take into an E-script workshop. (Registrants in E-script’s e-courses receive a 10% discount on a subsequent E-script workshop.)
In a workshop you work on your script-in-progress with the guidance of a working professional. You regularly submit script material by e-mail to your mentor for individual weekly feedback. At the end of the workshop, you have the option of “meeting” with your mentor by phone, Skype, Google Hangout, or online chat. (If you’re not sure how the latter methods work, we’ll show you. They’re easy. And free.)
And now you know.
