    Julie Carrillo United States of America This was a very informative module. It was also very applicable to my work since I spend a great deal of time at a desk and working on a computer. The information provided seemed to be a complete overview of ergonomics that was readily applicable to me. I was even able to make some of the adjustments suggested while listening to the lessons. I thought I was already familiar with the concept, but the module showed me that there was more to ergonomics than I originally thought. 2015-08-03 03:08:37
