by Tarmesha C. on May 21, 2024
This class was very informational, and pushed my potential as a student to want to do better.
by Miu H. on May 20, 2024
includes more of sense than memorization
by Ramses P. on May 20, 2024
good
by Jose R. on May 20, 2024
The course is alright. I wish some concepts were explained in more plain language, or at least language that a lay person can understand, and then after that, they should ramp up the technical jargon. Throwing it all at you at once can be intense. Also, the content sometimes feels out of order.
by Denika R. on May 20, 2024
Although I have been working in IT for many years, I really enjoyed taking this course. It allowed me to refresh on concepts that I learned years ago when I was getting my Associate's degree, and brought me up to date on the advancements and new technologies that are involved in the field of IT now.
by Ramses P. on May 20, 2024
very good
by Erika R. on May 20, 2024
I enjoyed the class however grading the touchstone was ridiculous. I followed the rubric and did everything to a T. Its like they didn't want my work to be perfect ..uggh !
by Natalie P. on May 20, 2024
