  • Taaha Shaikh
    Taaha Shaikh India I have successfully completed the Introduction to Instructional Systems Design Course and must say that I really am pleased with it. It is quite comprehensive, as well as informative and engaging. The only thing I feel which is lacking is more samples of practical examples of courses designed using ISD. Marina Arshavskiy and Alison ought to feel really proud for delivering such a wonderful resource for those just getting started. 2016-05-17 08:05:39

    Justin Shedron United States of America Very informative and easy to use. It would be better if there was voice over and animation but for a free course, it was great. 2016-05-17 04:05:14
  • Katia Buchs
    Katia Buchs Switzerland A very good example for an e-Learning course: - an simple structure of the subjects - the texts are easy to understand - Intuitive navigation and design - good visualization of the subjects. The little "negative" point is: no print-buttton in the text version. If we want to have a print copy of the subjects, you have to copy it in a Word Document. 2016-05-14 11:05:32

    Lynn Allen [[ZZ]] I have a grammar comment for the Measuring and Evaluating module: You need to change the word, extend (verb), to the word extent (noun). The grammar is not correct in the sentences with a verb. 2016-05-07 15:05:52
