The course was great for beginner teachers to help guide them through lesson plans and integrating technology in their plans. However, the way the advert read for this course I though it was more about discussing and discovering ipad apps and other features of ipads to use in the class room that i could integrate into my lesson already.

The delivery of the course has been reasonable. Unfortunately the parts where comment was required about other participants lesson plans was impossible as I was unable to see these. After several comments requesting how to do this without response I gave up on that. It has been very frustrating to ask for assistance and get absolutely no response. This is certainly an area that needs improvement.

I was looking forward to this course and feel disappointed by the lack of support supplied during the course. I discovered a file missing in one activity and
queried this. This was never answered.

There was numerous times myself and other participate asked questions in the comment sections. We never received a reply.

The course itself I felt had a lot of emphasis on us doing all the work. Which is fine if the support had been there. I thought it would have a larger number of apps referenced in the course.

In summary more course content is required and more support.

Some parts were very time consuming and it was difficult to give feedback to peers online.

The course gave lots of opportunities for participants to experiment with using different IPad apps in the classroom. There was a lot more work involved than I thought there would be and it was really difficult to find other participants when you have to give feedback on their lesson. It was lucky that another participant worked in the same school as me so we could share the work that we were doing.
