I am very thankful to all the creators and developers of this course, It really gave me the opportunity to understand the terminologies, legalities and a lot more,\n\nOnce again Thank you very much!!
The readings are interconnected throughout the lessons, making it easy for me to understand the lesson completely. More interactive materials aside from discussion prompts are recommended.

This course provides a good overview about virtual instruction and online learning for those who are looking to transition from classroom teaching. The topics are broken down into manageable chunks and a few interviews with other people help to add interest. However, when I wanted to go back and reread for clarification, I found the transcript to be poorly edited and at times almost unintelligible. As an example: iNACOL (National Association for Online and Blended Learning) is referred to many times in the video lectures and was transcribed in the text in a number of different ways: "Ian Nicole", "Inacles" and "iNickel." I really wish the people who put this course together has taken the time to read and edit the transcripts of the video lectures. Many sentences were written without punctuation or contained misspelled words. (enrollment was spelled enrolment) Often I just wanted to read it the lecture, not hear the instructor's voice but found the written text to be less than clear. I also wish there had been a way to ask questions regarding the material, but unfortunately, there was not, not that I could find. Finally, some of the questions on the final quiz are confusing. For example, question #5 " Which two of the following..." and then in parentheses it says to check all that apply. I hope this feedback helps to point out some of the problems that hinder virtual instruction.

This course did provide some helpful resources, but should be put together in a more appealing and interactive way. As the course has not been recently updated, none of the discussion forums were available while I was taking the course; most of the information stops around the 2013/14 school year; feedback for my assignment was rudimentary (one word only) and many of the links were no longer active. If this course is continuing to be offered in the year 2020, I think some thought and re-design is in order

Content seems dated and the forums and interactive activities were not available which is ironic since the course emphasizes the importance of interactivity in online learning. Videos were very basic and at times PowerPoint slides seemed incomplete. Nonetheless, lots of valuable information necessary for the courses that follow in the series.

This is a good course for learning about the reasons, rules and methods of virtual instruction but I think some more interactivity and an increase in the number of in video quizzes would help. I also think more screen shots and a greater number of screen changes would improve the experience.

All in all I liked the course, it's easy to comprehend and well structured. Nevertheless, I missed the lecurer, I'd really liked that the lectured didn't read the script but retold it in the camera, it would be more of a face to face communication. Besides, some interviews would be nice.
By Brian C•
Decent course regarding the history of online learning and some other superficial areas, but much of the information seems to be at least 7-10 years old and is in need of updating to be relevant in regards to current trends in Virtual Learning.

Final Quiz should have only wrong questions in re attempt. Unnecessary one has to keep doing right MC questions again and again. Multiple choice should be one instant of choice of selection form many answers. Thanks

The material is decent, but outdated (in 2020). Also, it's very US-centric in terms of school systems, funding, legislation etc. I would say the course has little value if you're not a USA-based K-12 teacher.

It is a nice course specially for the beginners in online learning. However, a lot of links are outdated i would recommend the course moderators should check those out and provide with updated links.
By Stefan R•
It's a nice overview, but overly specific to the US context (which is also part of quizzes etc). I hope and expect the following (more in-depth) courses of this specialization will be better.

I find the video a little old-fashion and the supporting material hard to navigate.
Content however was great, at the exception that it is no so easier to apply to non US-audeince
By Arun P•
The course has given a lot of new insights to Virtual Instruction. The course is well designed and the contents are appropriate. It is more focused towards US schooling.
By ANAND P P•
Videos are too lengthy and downloaded ppts have no content as such to be referred to. Instead of voice-over, video will be more interactive.
By Ivan C•
It's way too focused on US legislation, which sound completely unuseful for students abroad and provided little to no value at all.
By Krzysztof F•
Some of the content does not relate to policies and regulations anywhere outside the USA. Otherwise the course is very informative.
