Thank you for opening my mind to the possibilities! I will be teaching my first online course in October and was a bit nervous. You have all helped me to understand more and be open to the possibilities. It was great sharing this experience with you! Thanks Bill and Mary for sharing your expertise. I would recommend this course to everyone.
