The course had good, real world information and a variety of learning activities for students to complete.  The topics and information builds well upon itself as the student progresses in the course .  Thank you for the new and exciting course offerings!




The courses are really cool and different from other online courses I've taken.  I'd like to see more options like these, they really gave me a chance to explore career possibilities and exposed me to topics that I would not have learned otherwise.
