It was very convenient to be able to receive a certificate from the comfort of my home. The facilitator and staff were very helpful.- D.M., East Central College
The flexibility was very important to me…having recently lost my job and having life events interfere with my studies. The facilitator was very professional and accessible. This was my first online course experience. I was very impressed...and would take another course in the future.- J.S., Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
Mr. Casey Thompson, was an excellent facilitator. He replied to all concerns about the class in a timely manner.- M.D., Kennesaw State University
I really enjoyed being able to take this class at times convenient to me and that it was self-paced. My facilitator was very helpful with the comments they provided on assignments. My facilitator was always available via e-mail and live chat when needed.- T.P., West Virginia University
I really enjoyed the feeling of completion because I did not think I would have the discipline to take an online course! Meeting this challenge has boosted my confidence. I think you nailed it!- H.F., Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
I loved doing the legal research involved in this course. The facilitator, the support team and the student support made this experience a very smooth and enjoyable one. I thank everyone on the team for their support.- V.S., Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
I enjoyed the knowledge that I gained for legal research and for areas of law that I didn't have the experience in. I think the way the site was developed is very well done and very easy to navigate.- L.N., University of Wisconsin-Platteville
Although the online course experience demanded tremendous self-discipline, I was very grateful of the opportunity to advance my future career in an independent manner which allowed me to continue working full time at my current job and care for my family. My facilitator, Casey Thompson, was always prompt in responding to questions and grading assignments. The resource portion/listing of the program was also a great help.- L.H., Parkland College
Amy Anderson the facilitator with ed2go was a great assist with helping me complete the course. Whenever I had questions or concerns, she was there to help me. Because of her, I kept on with the course - there were times when I thought I just couldn't complete it. But her guidance and kind words kept me motivated. This course was perfect.- C.R., Cecil College
