I really enjoyed the research parts of this class. I liked taking the topics covered in each module, researching for a similar topic, but related to my teaching position. The amount of work was reasonable and I liked the self-pacing of each module. This allowed me more flexibility to work on assignments as I had the time.A.C., Reading Specialist
I like the course activities allowed me to select topics and technologies that are most relevant to my work.A.R., Tech Specialist
