The course has obviously been developed by skilled professionals. I can see and appreciate the use of many practices commonly implemented by seasoned teachers. It required me to use the skills, to successfully navigate this course, that we want our students to develop.

I learned some and was exposed to some good ideas, but I thought that some of the questions were confusing and that some of the concepts were not explained well. I felt that the course did not do a good job of making sure the differences ( which were often very few) between topics were explained. I also had a hard time following the logic behind how certain activities were labeled according to digital blooms. I did not find the section on SAMR to be helpful. I just felt it was adding unnecessary steps into planning for teachers. I did learn some things I didn't know about Blooms and I thought the idea of digital blooms was something that is relevant for students today. I didn't know understanding by design was a method of lesson planning, I just assumed that was the only way any teacher planned because it is the only logical way to do it ( I am a very logical person). So that seemed like common sense to me and that is how I have always planned even though I have never heard of it.

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