Hello Sophia personnel, I appreciate the simplicity of your website. I have grown accustomed to ultra-complicated online programs with outdated technology. I am a teacher and am always hunting for ways to streamline education. Your site does it well. -Jens Erickson

Overall the course was very good and I would recommend it to people. The only negative was that there was one instructor, Mackenzie, whose videos I really liked. The other instructor videos were not engaging and the quality wasn't very good. When I came to sections where Mackenzie didn't have videos I found it hard to concentrate and lost focus/interest. This of course is all personal preference.

informative course. great for an introduction to world religions. the final milestone is a bit confusing but thankfully you only need a score of 50% to pass the course. I did the entire course in about 3 1/2 weeks because it was so interesting and I couldn't wait to log on each day!

There were times that questions were worded strangely, but overall everything was satisfactory. There were also a few small things that were annoying, such as a 5k being called a 5k marathon (marathons are not the same as a 5k) and in one video about HIV/AIDS, Africa was called a country. Africa is a continent.

Very informative. This course had a lot of information but the challenges and Milestones were very straightforward. I thought the material was presented in a way that made it enjoyable to learn.

First of all, I am not much an art guy so this course was very tedious. Secondly, like many many many other people have already said the format of the quiz questions is very difficult. Many questions have 3 or more parts and if you get one part wrong the entire question is wrong. I felt the instructors and videos were long, the quantity of content very large, and the entire thing boring. I passed and now have credits to transfer into my college at 20% of the cost.
