    It was good, gave some great information and resources to use to assist with the students to create their portfolios. It was a little confusing to start as its not clear if we have to just watch the video or download the booklet to use whilst watching the video.

    This course was fabulous! I initially found it a little difficult to get my head around as I was doing it online and hadn’t been to one of Alicia’s courses before. However, before completion of this course I attended one of her other face to face courses (and loved it) and then had an understanding of how it was structured with the resource list, toolbox tips etc.

    It was very good at providing information on the depth of knowledge and evidence required for the e-portfolio. The online tips were great- I have never used half of these apps and was not aware that they existed. The resources are fantastic and the information on simulations was appreciated.
