Excellent course. I feel the foundation of Adult Learning Principles has been well cemented after completing the course. I have acquired skills and a better understanding of Andragogy. This will translate into incorporating these skills to those I mentor, to the classes I currently teach and to the coursework I have yet to create. Thank You!

I love the content but I feel like some of the quiz questions weren't clearly answerable.

I enjoyed taking this course. However, I found that many of the links under "Additional Resources" in Part 2 of the course were either no longer active or went to the wrong site.

It would have been nice if the powerpoints by Jody Waltman had a transcript of her lecture notes.
