It was an awesome experience for me in improving, especially my teaching skills to a new paradigm, I learned and benefited immensely from the course, as the course design is meticulously well planned.
I have found the course to be interesting with plenty of valuable information provided as part of the course and through interaction with fellow teachers and trainers from a wide range of disciplines.
Excelente curso, con buena estructura, muy buen contenido y buena manera de calificar. La única cosa que criticaría es que hay muy poco tiempo para hacer las actividades correctamente. Por ejemplo, yo que he tenido que dedicarme al curso de manera intermitente (dado que necesitaba atender otras obligaciones) he tardado casi cuatro meses. Una persona que se implicara en el curso de manera constante calculo que necesitaría, al menos, dos meses y medio.
Por lo menos existía la opción de renovar el curso indefinidamente, única razón por la que he podido completarlo así que espero que no cambien eso nunca.

Sincere thanks to Prof. Simon and Dr Nigen for designing this online course comprehensively. I have learned much about the online teaching world and the course has definitely helped alleviate most of my fears regarding the online teaching experience that I will soon have. The course has plenty of resource materials that I found useful (I couldn't access a few sites or 'find the pages' that were listed. I am unsure what went wrong unfortunately. Would have loved to access those materials too.)
On the whole it was a very fruitful course for a beginner like me.

I really enjoyed and benefitted from the course. It touched on all key components that we are currently experiencing as teachers since the pandemic started.
The only suggestion I have is that the University should also be involved in evaluating the assignments that are graded. I feel, from my experience, that the people that did evaluate were not necessarily well experienced or expert enough in doing so.
All in all, I will recommend this course to my teacher friends for sure.

The online course was really detailed with a lot of material for reference and videos to guide the learning. I also enjoyed the discussion forums and learnt a lot from them. The assignment was very practical and ensured that I began figuring out how to start planning and implementing online teaching.
However, I felt that the time was not sufficient to review all the material and videos provided in the said time of 17 hours. I enjoyed the course all the same.

It would be useful to update the course with new information about online tools/platforms for teaching, training or facilitation. Some links offered in the resources do not work anymore. The pandemic accelerated the development of this activity and the course stays at the level of 2014, as I could understand. However it is well structured and has a lot of useful links and information!

Hope to attend next level course since teaching online is not an option any more, it is the new reality .

Thank you for all your effort! It was very helpful for me. One little suggestion I have is to update some of the resources becuae the course had been designed n 2015 and some of the resources are outdated. Also, in the year 2020, the need of the instructors ,students and the capability of the technology might probaly have changed.

A very timely and relevant course at the time most higher-education institutions have been essentially forced to take the digital leap as a reaction to the Covid-19 crisis. Whilst it touches on all the areas relevant in this new normal, it might be worthwhile updating some of the content towards the online only reality.
von Jorge R•
The course is really complete and easy to carry out even with a full-time job, 3 to 4 hours of effort is enough.
I enjoyed the modules and resources, maybe it could be improved by supporting it with more educational theories and literature, but the experience from fellow educators from schools and universities is great.

+ Videos = short but informative
+ Self-evaluations = tailored to individual teaching categories (K-12, ESL, etc)
+ Resources = many worthwhile articles to read, consult and download.
+ Projects = challenging and well explained
_ Discussion forums - not so helpful

Peer review has to be better managed. My work was peer reviewed by colleagues within the same institution to which we have a mutual dislike. This personal rift could have affected my grading outcome.
von Esau S•
It was a nice learning experience. I suggest to give more room (more flexible schedule) to submit tasks and reports. Overall was good.
von Theresa P•
This course offers a tremendous amount of resources. My field is adult continuing education so some of the content did not apply.

The course obviously met my desire for a skills upgrade. I can now approach online teaching methodically with confidence. Excited.

it gets a bit repetitive for someone already teaching online.
