It's good, however, it is nothing I could not have learned from a youtube video from someone like Thomas Frank for instance

The course content was pretty superficial. Nothing was new to me. Maybe I already knew too much about project management.

Interesting and informative, but more of a talk than a course - I was surprised by how little content there was in it.

Only for beginners in time management who know nothing about time-saving techniques. It is very easy and repetitive.

Few tips to really organise our time. This module is good for people who do not have a clue on organising their time

The presenter was good but the course was too basic and barely an overview. It needed to be longer to be worth it

Just the usual things reiterated. However tests are good and remind us how even obvious points could be missed.

This course is very interactive and offers different cool ways of learning. Yet, this seems quite basic.

It is a basic lesson and an ambiguous tip. It seems to be difficult to use in the workplace.
