I really enjoyed this course, this is the first course I have ever completed here or in any other online environment. It was able to keep my attention and above all to be able to work, I have learned to throw a pomodoro at my work.

Great way to shift your mind away from obstacles to learning. Potentials are not hidden anymore. In fact they complement each other to bring out the best in you.

A very well-done course; it excels at everything: content, delivery, pacing, syllabus structure, scripting, video editing, images, quiz design, etc. Highly recommended.

It's always valuable to learn different ways of learning and thinking. I really appreciated the mind shake up!
