Trisha is a great instructor and this was a good class. The only drawback was the Milestone 2 test...it seemed to throw a lot of curve balls that didn't fully align with the content. That was discouraging.

There were some issues with the 2nd half of the course-several links at the end of the lessons were no longer functional and many misspelled words in the Milestone. Otherwise a great course!

I found part 2 of this course challenging - but still finished the 2nd part in 2.5 hours. The reason I'm giving the course 4 stars is a lot of the challenge questions had arguable answers, OR the video tutorials should have had more info to give us more knowledge. There is a lot of great information, but i highly suggest watching some of the videos a few times. Overall, a great course!

Has some great information, but I was disappointed with some of my answers that were counted wrong when there seemed to be multiple "correct" answers.

I will definitely use these ideas in my classroom.

Very informative course. A few odd questions that I thought had incorrect answers on some of the questions and a few misspelled words, but other than that, it was good.

The course was a little different than I expected. However, I did learn some good information from the course and I also had some review about topics I had already learned. The course projects are full of expectations and I can appreciate that as an educator, but they aren't always easy to understand what to write to. The Challenges include criteria at the end of each one that is supposed to help you write to your project, but I am finding that they don't always align well with the project competencies. The course was good overall it is just a lot of information and a lot of competency expectations for a single credit or two.

It is directly applicable to me and my classroom. I am building artifacts that I will continue to use with my students well after I finish the course.
