Lots of excellent content that certainly made me think about some important issues. I think this speaks highly of the course developers' curation and subject-matter expertise. Some of the quiz questions felt a bit pedantic, but over all, the assessments were fine. My biggest issue was with the delivery platform. Frankly, I found the default discussion tool did not actually facilitate any meaningful discussion.

If you've seen the same promotions for this MOOC that I did then you may take comfort in knowing that it delivers what it promises. So refreshing, and at the right price too.

The course is a project-oriented take on accessibility. It includes a lot of diverse resources, including video from my own institution's accessibility group.
