Our Students Say…

"“I can honestly say that I learned a lot more than I expected for a 1 credit course. I had a baseline understanding of social media before, but I feel more equipped now to incorporate new ways of doing things into my courses.

I am so happy this course introduced me to www.tackk.com. My alternative education students will absolutely love the concept of making online posters and using their creativity and energy for productive endeavors. This class has been a challenge and a blessing; it’s my favorite class so far at UW-Stout.”
