Student Reviews

Thank you, Susan, for your course! My learning curve was very steep, but doing the hands-on activity of creating a lesson helped me to accomplish so many new tasks. The foundation you have created in your course truly helped my understanding of how to proceed with creating my lesson.
I found the course “exceptional” and I learned so much on e-course design. I will certainly recommend this course to others.
As always OLL delivers a course that exceeded my expectations. A thorough course that enables students to learn at their own pace, have access to their instructor when needed, and have tools that they can continue their education and build upon what they have learned. Great course!
