  • This is such a fun course to take, perhaps the first MOOC that made me giggle at least once. The course creators successfully attempted to add humor on such a serious topic. I find that by turning errors and misconceptions in infection prevention and control practices into laughing matter, the necessary emphases are made so learners are more likely to consciously avoid them in their work.
