I wasn't sure what to really expect from this class since I have STEAM background but was pleasantly surprised that I learned a lot and it was very useful, and for the most part will be easy to implement and integrate into what I am already doing. Feedback was fast, the forum posts allowed for a platform to converse and get questions answered quickly.
