Top reviews from G Suite Administrator Fundamentals

By ABJun 19th 2018

This is top notch training with interactive UI using my domain. I have been supporting G Suite for 3 years, yet there was plenty more to learn. I really enjoyed this training. Thumbs up to Coursera.

By HAAug 1st 2018

Some of the modules need to be updated. It can be difficult trying to navigate through the newly-worded choices that Google offers in comparison to how those same options are named within Coursera.
