Learner testimonials

“The course was very interesting. I enjoyed learning from other students through their posts on the discussion board. And the game like approach to some topics made them easy to understand. Also the live presentations were helpful because it offered me interaction with the tutor. Overall it gave me the confidence and the skills to handle any work challenges.”
