    "Thank you for such a well designed site for this course! All the links work, and it is easy to maneuver from one place to another. I like how the assignments are clearly listed and have the date next to them. I can get right to learning when I log on rather than struggling to figure out how how to get from place to place. I’m taking another online course now and it is a nightmare and very frustrating.

    Thanks for making this a good experience!"
