  • Theresa Racer United States of America As a tour guide and paranormal researcher who gives an occasional public presentation, I have learned the value of story-telling in regards to educational purposes, and thus, thoroughly enjoyed the content of this course. The video lecture was easy to follow, and the content was condensed nicely into an easily digestible format. I also appreciate the option to download the various slides discussed in the lecture, as they were very hard to see in the video. However, I would have liked to seen an expansion of the course content. There was excellent information about why story-telling is an integral part of sharing information in a fun and easily accessible way, but there was very little on how to actually accomplish that. I would have liked to seen more examples and tips on how to work story-telling into the teaching/training process. Overall, though, I think this is a wonderful course. The presenter was quite knowledgeable and comfortable in front of the camera and the format of this particular course was especially easy and enjoyable to complete. 2014-12-14 01:12:33
