This is a very interesting course that aids the learner to learn. This course is great , especially for teachers in this ever changing technological world, where someone could be easily lost. It helps the learner to prepare for learning in a different medium( change from face to face , to online learning). By doing this course, it prepares the learner to learn online with ease and confidence. A variation of assessments are used, so the learner is not easily bored by doing repetitive, boring activities. A wise decision was made when this course was chosen.

by Poon completed this course and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
It serves an introduction to what is like is online learning. And if you want to know the difference between online and face-to-face learning.

The course has several webinars that you can join.

I learned understanding the function of LMS is also important in online learning. To be honest, I know there is a eportfolio in Canvas the first time. And access to it seems hidden.

The course is a very good introduction so far.
