Are IDEO U courses self-paced?

While we do design all our courses with a specific timeline in mind, we understand it can sometimes be a challenge to balance all the tasks each of us have on a daily basis. With that in mind, all of our courses are self-paced -- this provides the freedom to complete assignments and watch videos when they best fit into your schedule. A few things to keep in mind:

  • For the best learning experience, we recommend trying to keep to our suggested timeline as much as possible (please refer to your course syllabus for suggested due dates on assignments).
  • You need to complete all of your assignments and final project prior to your course's ending date in order to receive a certificate of completion.

If you have any questions about our courses being self-paced, feel free to reach out via our email at
