    Default present progressive or present perfect progressive?

    Dear A and B,
    how's it going? How is the course going/has the course been going since I last joined in one of our meetings?

    What tense is correct?
    I want to specify that I used to attend a course with A and B (They were my teachers) and now I left my town and I would like to write to them to know some info about the courses they offer... but I have some doubts about the tense I should use. I think the present perfect progressive is the correct one, but if it isn't could you tell me why?
    Thanks so much for your help.

    If you used to attend a course where they were the teachers, and you want to know what has happened since you left:

    How has the course been going since I left?
