LLA is an distance education class focused on the fundamental principles of learning and behavior, and the behavior change technology known as applied behavior analysis. As such, it has trans-species, and interdisciplinary relevance to any professionals working with behavior. The class meets via tele-conference for 2 hours weekly for 8 weeks. During tele-classes, students follow the lectures while viewing over 400 slides and videos at the behaviorworks.org website. In addition, students read weekly written lectures, 8-12 pages long, and respond to weekly homework assignments that are queried by the instructors up to 3-5 times, allowing students to continue to revise their responses until they master each concept. Finally, a 25 item final exam, and functional assessment and intervention design exercise are the capstones of the course.
