“This course was a highly effective blend of information, knowledge, concepts, and skills that I was aware of, things I hadn’t been able to articulate to myself, and things I did not know. Through a variety of teaching modalities, videos, and handouts, I was easily able to think about how I could apply ideas and materials in my own courses, and in one-on-one interactions with students and colleagues who I feel like I could not only collaborate with, but to also offer insights and suggestions as relevant and appropriate. I appreciate this course’s existence, period, but also its high quality and that the people who built it have an advanced knowledge of Articulate tools. I would take another course from FSU in the future.”
