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!!

2x2: Compliments: very easy to do at my own pace, seems applicable to what I do Concerns: some of the information seemed outdated, the questions were very ambiguous where all of the answers could be correct.

The course is highly instructive. I found the test questions a bit ambiguous and at times a little hard to understand. It was, however, well worth the time.
