Very good! Thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it to teachers.

Very helpful. Hope to be able to apply many of these in my own teaching.

I would, however, have enjoyed to see more of the concepts in action - classroom.

It is an excellent course. Thank you so much for all.

I learned a lot in this course. It focuses on the 21st century skills of collaborative problem solving and knowing how to learn in a MOOC, which were two aspects of education research I had never explored. The assignment (developing a teaching activity to promote collaborative problem solving skills) was very engaging, and I found that overall the course was a good mix between theory and practice. The intended audience for the course is really classroom teachers, which I personally am not, but I still found it very interesting.
