This syllabus was GREAT. As an adult learner, I got what I needed out of this class. The assignments followed a super logical progression, and I was able to really enhance my instruction with the tools. I finished the class super quickly and didn't get teacher feedback until the end. I don't think that mattered too much because I didn't really have any questions. I was able to just direct myself, which I like. I love how you can take these classes with coworkers because it's a great opportunity to learn together. My coworker and I both took this class separately, and decided to do the Flipped one together.
This course gave me a head start for this academic year. Our district is teaching completely online, and the tools that I learned about are the ones that we are using. It is not an easy start to the year, but I feel a little more confident that some of my co-workers seem to be. Thank you!

I teach K-12 Music and you don't have a drop-down for that. Your courses are excellent and to the point. I have no trouble navigating on your website. I appreciate the feedback on my assignments.
