I have taken many online courses over the last 5 years. The Heritage online course I just completed was by far one of the best I have taken. The website is well designed and easy to use. The course assignments are relevant to the course and my situation. Overall this has been one of the best educational experiences I have had.

Course: TOTALLY POSITIVE TEACHING
with Mary Ann Johnson

I have been taking post-graduate classes for years. I think Brenda was an exceptional teacher. Besides the excellent academically-created course, her guidance, positive energy, patience, and support are something I appreciated. I want to take another class from her and recommend her without reservations to my colleagues. After 13 years of abusive and insulting principals I was demoralized and wanted to quit after 31 years of teaching. Brenda has relit the candle of hope for me, and I excited to use her material every day. I find it so valuable that I plan on writing some of her suggestions and strategies, And ideas and having them spiral-bound into a book to use everyday. Brenda is a blessing. I am looking forward to school and not dreading it as I have for the last 13 years. Please publish my full name. Please send this to Brenda,too. Sincerely, Cheryl A. Jackson Kent, WA 253 856 1073

Course: TEACH LIKE A CHAMPION: Field Notes From The Masters
with Julie Bora

Professor Boll's class was user-friendly, responsive, and immediately applicable to my classroom. I was very pleased with the clarity of these lessons and my newfound ability to create a professional-looking, easy-to-update classroom website. Professor Boll also recommended a wide variety of other tech tools that were easy to learn along the way--things like Gravatar and Canva, which I began implementing in my classes right away. I found this online class to be one of the most useful and no-nonsense grad-level classes I've taken as a teacher. No frills or wasted time, just great tools and well-organized lessons to teach you how to use them. I will definitely recommend this class to colleagues.

This course went much further than I had thought it would. There were a few self-analyses that were hard to do, but insightful. The breadth and depth of what I learned surpassed my expectations. I see teaching in a new light, and will keep working at reaching every student as best I can. Mary Ann Johnson is a wonderful instructor of the highest ability. I am so glad I get her tutelage. Her positive comments are a pleasure to read.

Excellent prompt communication from instructor, with very clear expectations if I needed to change an assignment. I am very impressed at how much history I got out of this class through studying musicals. I also have a renewed joy in watching musicals, and now watch them from a historical perspective.

This is my second class with Michael Boll. He does a great job and I was happy to see another course available from him. I was also glad for the ability to collaborate with another colleague for this video production course. It was an intensive course and doing it with a peer made the work load more fun and fit with the theme of the class. Videos are meant to be collaborative and we'll expect our students to be able to create together because of limited time, space, and technology. I really enjoyed this class and the things I learned and created from it.
