Will I need to be available at specific times of the day to study a microcredential?

No, you won’t need to be online at particular times of the day. Microcredentials are designed to fit around your life. There may be live events as part of your studies, but these will be recorded and can be watched afterwards if you can’t make the live broadcast.
