This course was well designed, focused, sequential and useful. I highly recommend it.

I enjoyed the material and got some good perspective on digital learning hierarchy... but some of the challenge questions had distractors that were so thinly parsed it was hard to tell what the right answer was.

The questions were challenging at times making me think about where this situation fell in different models. However, it did make me take a closer look at how I proceed with lesson planning and technology.
