The course was comprehensive and information-packed, but also quite readable! It was a bit difficult to access due to site issues, but that has nothing to do with the course.

The course was engaging and informative, but the \"complete lesson\" button could have been placed more intuitively.

There were a few bugs with being able to view some buttons but that may have been a browser issue on my end. I loved how specific the course was and I feel comfortable in my ability to effectively participate as a DME intern.

The content was fine, and the quiz component was as well. Although I missed the \"complete lesson\" button, and was simply clicking \"next\" to go to the next lesson. There should be a better visual indicator for what to press when completing a lesson, or a prompt when clicking \"next\" to prevent situations like mine.
