I thought the online structure was a strength of this course. Everything was laid out nicely and organized in a way that I could plan out what I needed to get done and I liked that I could check things off. I also liked that there were PowerPoints in the content where the professor actually talked about the material. That helped me make a connection to the instructor and to the content.
