"I found this course to be exactly what I needed, it has enthused me and taken away the fear of using an IWB. I feel it was a very hands on course and the resources provided were excellent, it was like a face to face summer course at times. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and feel it met and surpassed my expectations. There are so many ideas I have learned from completing these five modules and I hope to incorporate them into my teaching next year." - Joan, 2018
