This was my best online learning experience EVER! I appreciate that the tutorials were short and to the point. I did not have to watch a bunch of steps I already knew how to do.
The course is set up where I worked at my own pace between work and making free-time. I like the platform that is used and the smooth, caring voice of the presenters.
I appreciated that this course was real. It was like a friend talking to me. There was no educational jargon that made me tune out. It was fun!
I wish that our district would do less district training and do everything through FriEd. I have learned so much from the 3 courses that I have taken. Each course is engaging and fun.
I love FriED courses! They are current, modern, and very engaging. The format is always user friendly and engaging. I cannot wait to utilize new things in my classroom.

The content covered was impressive, and everything was fully supported with outstanding videos, photos, graphics, and stories that engaged and provided context!
