I like the module/phase chunking of the course, the recordings, and the interactive question-answer practice. The instructors were enjoyable to listen to, professional, and knowledgeable. I loved Jose's comments at the end, and the tribute to Jose was beautifully done.

I really enjoyed the interactive case study. I felt that it was incredibly helpful to get some (synthesized) real-life experience. The format and progression of the phases made a lot of sense and built on the previous one to make a very cohesive class.

My favorite aspect of the course was the RASCI method. This was particularly interesting to me because whenever projects are implemented in my current workplace there would be only a big meeting about it and everyone else is so focused on their own job that there wouldn't be much oversight. As a result most projects are left halfway. I like how the method enables every participant to agree to an outcome that complies with requirements set by management.

I enjoyed the course layout and the variety of ways the information was presented. It was good to have exemplars from different industries. The modules were easy to access and see what was completed and what was yet to be completed. I greatly appreciated the length of time given to complete all of the material.

I thought the course was excellent.  I enjoyed multiple exemplars that were presented throughout each module.  Think "seeing" it applied in other settings is super valuable if OBM/ABA is going to get a stronger following outside the traditional avenues.

I loved all the resources given.  I thought they were great and I will use them in my current position. I liked that the main course material could be completed at my own pace as I have a full-time job and a family.  I often completed items on the weekend or late evenings.

Embed and the Sustainability Checklist was of the most value for me.  I loved seeing Jose Martinez Diaz in the rocket ship as I was on a panel with him, and over the years engaged in many smiles with him.
I have never self-paced a college course before, so it allowed me to learn best in my own personal way.
The interactive components in the modules were outstanding.  I wish there was even more of those.
