Six sessions are currently offered, conducted by four separate instructors. PNC encourages users to suggest additional instructors and session topics.

The sitelet is easily navigable, providing an interactive landing page in which users can traverse through the sessions being offered. Each session features a two to five minute video, instructor biography, quiz about the viewed session, Q&A and a challenge to apply learned material to everyday life.
