This is wonderfull. However some of the question should be asked better just in case for new students. Very beneficial. I have no complaints.

I really enjoyed learning about the different levels of technology I could use in the classroom. This was fun and very informative.

This course emphasizes the importance of determining one's desired learning outcomes before selecting the technology to be used to ensure the two match. Numerous instructional designs are provided to give teachers more than one choice.

Interesting information and reminders of what we learned in college. Good information for people like me who are new to technology. The Challenges and Milestone had questions that could have been taken a few different ways and so were difficult.

I learned a lot of usable information. There were several link in the additional resources that would not work properly.

Content was good, but questions in MULTIPLE areas had "correct" answers that directly contradicted the tutorials. I would request that the people writing these questions review the content being provided to us.

Great course! I enjoyed the refreshers on concepts I was familiar with, such as Bloom's Digital Taxonomy and was excited to learn about some new ways to incorporate and evaluate technologies in the classroom. Thanks for providing these valuable courses for busy teachers!!
