Our Students Say ...

This course was relevant and well organized. I'm looking forward to continuing in the certificate program.

The instructor provided remarkable timely and professional feedback about my interaction and progress in the course.  I felt encouraged and supported the whole way through.

She is an excellent example of an online educator, and I will take this experience and attempt to mirror it in my future teaching.

Her style of using YouTube videos for visual instruction was very helpful.
