The course was set up well and the example tutorials were interesting and engaging. The step-by-step instruction on using Google+ and its features is necessary for some instructors just starting out in the online environment.

Very easy to use this template. Use of multimedia to relay information was engaging. I would have broken the video into smaller chunks but overall was effective. Another especially useful tool was the visual representation of the weighted assignment table.
