  • A very professionally-run course with relevant content on new technologies for Teaching and Learning. The only reason I haven't rated it as a 5-star is that, after being very strict on deadlines for assignment submission during the course, at the end they took a long time to grade us and would not post any public announcements acknowledging or apologising for the delay.
