I like your online course, I think it is a good introduction to CSR and it is quite practical to navigate through. I like the fact that you have a quiz at the end
I really like it and I think there is a real need for such a course. Excellent layout and content, and the right balance between theory and practice. Congratulations!

I find it very informative and efficient in terms of return on effort. The introductory video is very good. It sets the tone of the course almost like in a "face-to-face" environment. I like the way to travel through the course, forwards and backwards. It is convenient. The idea of the forum is excellent as it promotes participation. Congratulations for the excellent course. I wish you plenty of the success with it.
