Here's some comments about the set-up and quality of my online courses: 

When it is an online course, you never know how the quality of the videos and sound will be. Also, you never know how (much) feedback you will be able to receive/give. But everything turned out great!
— ML Ontario, Canada
I liked being able to complete short modules when the time allowed me to. I liked being able to pause the video and try things out.

MORE COMMENTS ABOUT THE COURSE

"I definitely feel more technological savvy and recognize this is the way the world is moving so it feels good to have a handle on how as an occupational therapist to utilize an iPad to assist in assessing and strengthening occupational performance areas for the students I work with." V - Ontario, Canada

"Thank you very much for your course. It was definitely very helpful and I am glad I decided to take it. I appreciate you giving us so many chances to provide and receive feedback as well as ask questions. I can't wait to work with pre-school and school-aged children and use these apps." M - Ontario, Canada

"The course provided me with valuable information and justification for why the iPad is a great tool for OT assessments and how the apps and programs can be used by clients in their treatment." R - South Australia, Australia

"My approach to technology has changed with the various action sheets as well as the framework from this course. As such, I am able to take additional aspects into consideration every step of the way as I am prescribing technology, introducing the device and integrating it into therapy to benefit my clients. When I feel that something just isn't quite right, I can now refer to these sheets, take a step back, and reflect on which piece is missing or was not taken into consideration." S - Ontario, Canada

"I loved that I could go at my own pace, and I could stop, rewind, and review sections if I needed to...The biggest change (for me was) expanding the use for the iPad...(from) view(ing) the iPad as a tool for leisure/reward...(to) a tool to develop specific skills."  P - Nova Scotia, Canada 

"Though I always felt that that the iPad could be used as an OT tool, I now feel I see it as one. I feel I have the 'theory' and the OT thought process when using the tool now which I did not feel I had before hand.  I am also attaching the use of the iPad to OT goals and not just as a recommendation." V - Quebec, Canada

"I liked the app review you provided. I found it to be very comprehensive, touching on a number of different skill areas. It provided a very good start for someone who is just starting to search the App Store for ideas. I feel that I can jump in and have a good source of apps that I could consider." C - Ontario, Canada

"I have never had any problems with technology and I am comfortable with iPads, but now I feel more confident on how to use it as an OT and how to apply this to the kids that I will be working with in the future." M - Ontario, Canada  

"(The greatest take away from the course)...was to experiment more with apps.” M - Colorado, United States

"Before, I did not use the iPad at school unless someone specifically asked a question about it but now I try to think of apps that can help each student I work with." R - British Columbia, Canada
