- Your courses make you stand out compared to the typical courses you find elsewhere as they often show the theory but never the "look over my shoulder" part. Theory can be found on the internet or books, rarely the field experience. Take care!

- Very strong course. I like the idea that justifications are provided for incorrect answers on the module and final tests. Same goes for the opportunity to repeat tests, even after I had "passed" since it allowed me to face different questions in each iteration and improve my understanding.

- Your courses are just great! I especially loved the BPMN module where you show step by step how you organize modeling sessions and then do create the different model levels. A real golden nugget, practical and applicable!
