Informative and well thought out

This was a very thorough and thought provoking course. I enjoyed the example of videos that can assist with explaining topics to your children and learners. My mom was listening to some of the videos with me while I was busy and mentioned how she would have loved to have had the knowledge when we were younger. Excellent work, thank you.

This Internet Safety course was relevant and on-point for teachers and parents alike.

Dr Walstra has simplified Online Safety in a concise manner, reminding us of why this topic is of critical importance. She backs up her facts with numerous sources. I appreciate the impactful videos that can be shown to learners, to make them aware of their online activity. The self-reflection for each topic was thought-provoking, and I look forward to using these ideas in my lessons.

The content was incredibly comprehensive and up-to-date. The course covered a wide range of topics, from basic internet safety principles to advanced security measures. Each module was well-structured and presented in a clear, engaging manner. I appreciated how the lessons were broken down into manageable segments, making it easy to absorb and retain the information.
