Kepler offers three different types of learning opportunities, each with a different focus. Our primary offerings are the for-credit courses that comprise the Certificate and Diploma Program. But we also offer free Community Webinars and paid Workshops, which are described below. The primary differences between these options are instructor assistance, feedback and evaluation. All our live sessions are recorded. Students and participants receive access to the recordings shortly after the session.

There are free classes available to anyone who enters as a “guest” on the Certificate classroom website. These classes are provided for your own enjoyment and development. They do not have any live interaction or instructor assistance.
Our donation funded Community Webinars are 1-1/2 hours in length and provide an opportunity to astrologers to experience a new topic and hear a variety of speakers. These webinars are offered to the community as part of our non-profit mission and as a thank you.
Community Webinars are designed to give speakers a chance to present a topic they are excited about - and perhaps one that may not normally be offered. We provide this opportunity not only to presenters comfortable with public speaking but also to those new to the community.
Prior free webinars are sometimes offered for sale to raise scholarship money. Students enrolled in for-credit courses can view many of the Community Webinars through the Marion D. March Online Library.
Kepler periodically offers paid webinars that are designed to raise money for student scholarships.
Workshops range from 2 to 10 hours in a variety of interesting and entertaining areas. Topics vary from the history of astrology to astrological techniques. Workshops are in a lecture format and participants may ask questions. Workshops provide time for interaction and questions. Workshops are an excellent opportunity to build one’s knowledge of astrology.
In workshops, the burden of learning is on the participant. Students can interact and ask questions during the live meeting, but feedback is minimal. There is no required homework and students are not evaluated.
Workshops are recorded and access to the recording is sent to all participants within a few days after the workshop has been held.
Students have access to an online research library. Enrollment gives you access to thousands of books and peer-reviewed articles not generally available to the public. Kepler currently has a database subscription to Early English Books Online (EEBO): complete primary source material written in or translated to English through the nineteenth century. There are complete works by Lilly, Ramses, almanacs and more available in EEBO. In addition, there are numerous digital resources.
