I always love being able to work at my own pace. Never did I feel like I was rushed to submit work. You did a great job of providing feedback in a timely manner. That challenged me to do the same for my students. Another aspect I appreciated was having the flexibility to choose the tools and add-ons that were best for me and my students. That told me this class is less about checking off boxes and more about a deep exploration of tools that will be successful in my classroom. I’m thrilled with what I learned and look forward to completing other courses of continuing education with you. Thank you for providing an excellent course. - Winter 2018 Student
