If a person takes the time to read all of the attached pdfs and website you can get quite a detailed knowledge of this topic. The course did a very good job of mirroring the principles that it taught.
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 really enjoyed this course but I do have one complaint: the majority of references, whether academic or links to websites, were several years old. Online teaching is a relatively new discipline that has matured tremendously during the pandemic. I therefore expected a lot more up-to-date further reading.
That said, I'm pleased I've done the course. I'm a digital marketing trainer and spend most of my time online yet I still picked up some ideas on how to use hybrid (online and offline systems simultaneously). I also learned some (regular) teaching theory.
I was surprised that my assessment was peer-reviewed (I guess I should have read the terms and conditions!) But actually I did enjoy assessing other students' work. I enjoyed the quizzes and I found the assignments useful (I am planning to launch a Learning Management System). I thought the teachers were great and would recommend this course; however I strongly believe that UNSW should update their references and further reading as I feel I missed out on that aspect.

This is an excellent course, full of information, insight and different perspectives from education professionals working across a diversity of disciplines. It is well structured and well thought out, and has been a pleasure to take.
Perhaps most importantly, as we are now in the midst of a pandemic education has had to adapt, and very quickly, to online tech, sometimes to the point of being the only form of education available. Teachers were asked to teach fully online and students asked to learn fully online, and neither community was prepared for the challenges that this brought. Perhaps the course can be updated to consider this new reality?

Thanks for a well-constructed course, clearly aligned to its own principles. I found the course worthwhile in terms of making me think about ways I could improve my online teaching.
However, as an experienced teacher of face to face and online classes, I was disappointed by the contributions from other participants - discussions and assignments that I saw tended to be very general, low level and vague. I was hoping to learn from them and engage in conversations about others' experiences.
One other thing was that a number of the links provided in the course resources went nowhere. I know it is difficult to keep links current, but nonetheless as part of practising what you preach, you really should!

I think the concepts and the information presented, plus the peer evaluation process and the wealth of resources make this course a great overview for anyone teaching online for the first time, especially those of us forced into Distance Learning. I am taking away a lot of good conceptual ideas, plus many bookmarked websites and pdfs.
At the same time, some of the course materials, especially when referring to specific technologies, is outdated. More than a few links to the online resources are broken or absent, and should be checked and replaced as needed.
Overall, thank you for a 4 out of 5 star experience!
