Wow that was one of the most engaging eLearnings I've ever had. I knocked it out in 2 days. The stories made it very engaging and not dreadful. The only thing that I'd critique on is the lesson videos. It wasn't very tech savvy and a little bit poor quality but the teacher I used did an awesome job nonetheless.
