    Course materials were good, the mentoring approach was good, and working with other people via the Internet was good. The instructor did a good job of communicating and making it a more intimate arrangement.

    The support from tutors was first rate, while the course was well paced, and pitched at a level which allowed me to learn quickly and in depth without becoming bogged down in too much techno-babble.

    Very well organized and conceived. By following the course, I was able to learn and build on the concepts with minimal questions or frustration. It taught me what I was looking to learn, was well organized, and well paced. I’m already applying what I learned at work.
