The concepts were quite post-modern and interesting. I do like it. I will be implementing what I've learned.

This program the perfect introduction and follow up of personalized learning. ALL the information presented was exactly what my district talked about, so I was WAY more prepared than my co-workers just hearing the information for the first time.

This course was pretty easily studied. It gave lots of information. Sometimes maybe more information that necessary but still things I can use in my classroom. A lot of the topics would be hard to completely implement in a regularly public school setting but could be adapted quite easily. This is was also the second time that some of the answers were debatable especially since some of the tutorials directly contradicted the answer and sending feedback was difficult to do. Overall this was worthwhiel though.
