Went “above and beyond” the basic expectations
A comprehensive presentation of a complex topic, which I feel went “above and beyond” the basic expectations. A good mix of academic theory and practical application. I enjoyed the exercises at the end of each module which provided an opportunity to reflect on learning.
The additional resources were of a high standard, as were the links to external resources. The opportunity to download the modules as a PDF provided a useful aide memoire, as did the work sheets.I particularly liked the unlimited “shelf life” of the course – which meant I did not have to stress about completing it within a defined time.
The site itself is easy to navigate in general. Looking forward to the next course!
