This course was incredibly practical. I learned to use many apps that I'm using right now with my distance learning experience with students. I believe these will actually improve my student's face-to-face classroom experience in the future. Excellent pacing and content.

This Google Apps course was excellent. The assignments were well designed, practical, and taught me the needed skills efficiently. The instructor responded quickly and gave helpful feedback on assignments. I've already recommended this course to colleagues. Thanks so much, Chris!

This was a wonderful course. We had to use the sharing that Google is famous for submitting assignments. The instructor was available for questions via document comments (perfect!). He encouraged a deeper understanding and challenged me to explore some of the areas the course covered in a more in-depth manner. He was able to relate my learning to my teaching assignments at school.
