A lot of the links didn’t work. For example everything shared through ‘slide share’ would not open. I would get this message whenever I clicked on the links: 'This uploaded file has been marked private by the author. Sorry!'

The course has excellent suggestions on a variety of tools. It is very relevant to the current requirement and push for more technology use but also for a different approach to the traditional methods of teaching. It has given me new tools to use to provide content in a different manner. It has excellent step by step materials to guide you on how to use the tools, both in text format but also helpful videos. The variety provided allows the teacher to identify the tool that would best suit their classroom or subject.

I was very disappointed with the content and actually teaching that was included in this course. Most of it was just directing the participant to a number of different websites and then you had to to try to navigate your way.

The course was good. I found some of the instructions for using different tools were not accurate or easy to follow. The ideas were very valuable.

The Flip it course was engaging and practical course for teachers of any subject. I found that the online format was extremely beneficial as you could manipulate resources in real time, use them and then make any alteration or get support when you were stuck straight away. Meaning that all these great ideas have already been put into practice in the classroom, rather than waiting for the next time you teach something.

The idea of a flipped classroom seemed daunting at first but I feel that this course has provided me with the information and skills to help me implement it. The course opened my eyes to just how powerful ICT can be in engaging students in their learning. I was amazed by the range of online tools out there for teachers and I now feel confident enough to use some of these tools in my own classroom.

Very useful and informative. Resources were very appropriate for teaching, and I was presented with many ideas and strategies I have never used or considered in teaching.

I learned some valuable tools that I will integrate into my teaching. I didn’t think that it was necessary to have to contribute to the forum or have to reply to others comments. I didn’t feel the benefit of this and it added to the already lengthy time of the course.
