    This course shares a lot of beneficial knowledge about disabilities. The lectures were broken up into 5-10 minute segments which was great, as made it easier to start or stop a lesson to fit in personal schedule. The quizzes were relevant to the information gathered. However, I was unable to complete activities and post them. As a result, I was unable to receive a completion certificate which would have been nice.
