Simply interactive and informative

All very good
Gradual and methodical unfolding of information.
The way the whole modules were presented by information, pictures and keynotes to remember specially the tests that are at the end of each set. Very well presented, want to read over and over again and gain various points of educating myself.
I have learned a lot in this module, its ease of use and content were reassuring
The frames were nicely laid out making it easier to follow what was being stated.
All was good and settled in mind of various types of abuse and neglect going around in society.
I loved about this course as it was online I didn't have the hassle to go somewhere and do it and would want to do more online training.
I liked the voice over activity, this made me take the course at a slower pace and reiterated what I read.
