I really enjoyed taking this course. I specially liked the videos. They were well chosen.
This course contained a great overview of Autism and the use of iPads to support student learning. I found it very helpful and will refer back to it for continued teaching strategies.
The course covered the topic areas well. Each topic was clearly set out with thought provoking videos and or material to read, followed by activities that led to further development of understanding. Resources and links to finding further resources were given throughout the course, so I have a lot of material to take away from this course that I will use in future. The course presenter was available online, and responded remarkably quickly to queries and comments that I raised. She was very helpful and corrected a broken link to a video within minutes of my raising the problem. I felt like she was working alongside of me, which was a pleasant surprise! Usually online courses leave you feeling like there is no one out there to help. Would recommend this course to others.
