This was a very immersive and interesting course -- a lot of self-learning to be done on your own to really understand and put together into practice the technology into your own course and workflow.
Thank you for this course. I get know experience and knowledge in using different kinds of online tools which are useful and effective. I'll use some of them during my lessons. And lots of thanks.

Overall, this is a very good course which introduces participants both to some important theoretical concepts from the field of Education and to a good array of online tools which can be incorporated in online teaching. Then why only 3 stars? For one, the insistence on Twitter-related activities bothered me. It was not a large part of the course, but in a course this short, every element matters. There are massive concerns related to social media platforms, from privacy issues to security problems to ethical matters. These should have been taken into account. Secondly, there were some technical problems like broken links and missing text boxes for some assignments. Thirdly, there was no instructor or TA presence on the forums during my particular session and participant interaction was minimal. I do recommend this course, but do keep in mind that the time investment will be higher than 15 hours if you put any thought into your assignments and that it won't exactly blow your mind unless you're a complete novice. I do think that the course should be updated considering the increase in demand in times like these.

Very practical examples for teachers to prepare online courses
Not enough guidance for how to use Moodle, which is very tricky. The links to external guides which are there are not always the best. The guide time of a couple of hours for week one is completely misguided. It is basically saying you could create a fully interactive online course from scratch in under a day! Not well thought out or complete and therefore very frustrating.

This was an extremely helpful course. Through its assignments, you are 'forced' to put into practice what you have learned; this is very useful and quite challenging . Not all material is new to someone who has some experience in HE but even if one has previous knowledge, this course helps you consolidate it. Surprisingly, while it looks like a very technical course, it motivates you to reflect on your teaching. I am very happy I have attended it.
[One minor suggestion: in one assignment, you are asked to use Twitter and create a poll. This shouldn't be necessary. Not all people are comfortable with having a presence in social media and they shouldn't be obliged to do it to get the full credit for an assignment].

A varied range of tools is explained, so teachers can organise their course content online for students.
New and old tools that are shown are all dispersed on the web, get ready to create plenty of logins, but test, try and select the one that best works for you. All these tools can be a fit for the different activities a teacher will create. This course does not teach you how to sell a course online, for example as institutions would do by uploading their MOOCs onto Coursera, but you will learn a lot.
The Get Interactive lecturers and organisers curated this course very well, do not get discouraged if it's your first MOOC, things start to make sense after the 2nd week.

I am a college professor in India and this year we were sort of compelled to adapt to online teaching because of COVID-19. I wanted to learn how to take my teaching online as I had never taught virtually before. This course helped me a lot to learn about the available online tools and it has made my job as a teacher not only easy but also very interesting. My students are also enjoying technology-enabled learning a lot. Thank you so much for this MOOC.

Este curso me otorgo muchas herramientas para aplicar en mis clases, muchas de ellas las desconocía y estaban al alcance de todos, de manera gratuita, podemos utilizarlas para crear material audiovisual más llamativo e interesante para nuestros estudiantes, así como también crear distintas instancias en de empoderamiento por parte de ellos a crear material de estudio y generar discusiones de grupo para enriquecer su propio aprendizaje.

I think this course is very useful if you need to implement using online resources in your classroom. There were some tools that I have been using for a while, but there were some others I haven’t tried before and they were very handy and I started to use right away. In general the course meet my requirements and I totally recommend it.

I really liked this MOOC. The teachers provided us with a lot of useful material, like videos, papers and technologies. In addition, thanks to the weekly assessments we, the students had the opportunity to use the proposed technologies by ourselves and to put into practice our ideas. Thank you!
von Dovi S•
One of the best courses I have taken! The theory is presented in short videos and a lot of reading. The practice assignments are interesting, it was quite difficult for me because English is not my native language, but i have learned so much! Thank you!

Es un excelente curso, te brinda muchas herramientas multimedia para poder ocupar a lo largo de tu labor docente. Además, las explicaciones que se dan para poder aprender a usar estás herramientas son bastante claras y concisas.

It is the best course I have done so far, I learned a lot with lots of practical activities. The only thing I didn´t enjoy was the discussion forum at the end of every week because the opinions weren´t very helpful
von Aurelie T•
Great course! Really good, really instructive. A perfect combo between videos, reading and practical exercises. I learned many things that I put in practice today with my students. I truly recommend it.

Really useful course, to encourage trying out new technologies and interactive activities as well as providing understanding of the pedagogical base for these.

While basic, it is a course that lets you get hands-on in practicing how to use many e-learning tools in a way that's not only engaging, but meaningful.
