"It's a very well planned course, it's all been very educational from beginning to end. I can access from any computer so I can always take it with me and it also remembers where you are at when you sign out, so you can easily pick up where you left off. The assignment writing has given me excellent experience in writing, which is something I'd never really done before I enrolled on this course"
