Excellent tutor. I learned  how to do Journaling and to write about my life in a meaningful and a organised way.

     I enjoyed the course with Mardi.  She worked very hard to make it interesting and inclusive against quite some odds.  Unfortunately the commitment level of students did not rise to that enthusiasm.  If one signs up for such interactive courses then the idea is surely that everyone participates for the good  of all participants ?  To push oneself beyond the comfort zone is surely what education is about at whatever age ?

Confirmed a number of previous assumptions and provided me with food for thought moving forward.

It helped me in becoming creative again after a lapse, gave me focus and ideas and the other course participants were also very inspiring

I have done this course twice and can see how I would benefit from doing it again as my autobiography is a work in progress.  I have considerable demands on my time (family commitments, long stints of around the clock babysitting), plus I travel a fair bit.  I’m grateful for the flexibility Mardi and the class have allowed me to participate when I am able and to not be judgemental when I’m unable to complete assigned tasks.

I was able to trace ancestors that I thought I would never be able to find.

Although it is a topic that I know a lot about, I still found new things I didn’t know (like the film of Conan Doyle)and I really appreciated the links to such a variety of interesting topics, both modern and historic.

The course is both entertaining and educational.

Autobiography & Journaling -
 enjoyed this course more so when I realised no deadlines to meet, so stress free, yet took me out of my comfort zone though – really great!
Just right, got the old grey matter working that’s for sure.  Having the notes provides the opportunity to virtually go through the whole course again at own leisure. Excellent.

A & J with leader

Only a small group, but over the course we enjoyed the diversity of each other’s writing and being able to comment on one another’s work.
Lots of encouragement from the course leader  Mardi Sands  - other participants very supportive, friendly and encouraging.

Autobiography & Journaling with Leader -
I found this course to be an amazing way to interact with such a diverse group of people from across Australia and internationally. We all shared the common interest in writing, had wildly varying levels of skill and experience, but were all encouraged equally to “keep writing”.
The tutor gave exceptional support – extra information, suggestions, resources, ideas – encourages participants to share their own helpful resources

Introduction to Western Philosophy

I loved it + found the whole thing very stimulating  and it made me hungry for more

Introduction to Western Philosophy

Being involved in forum discussions with fellow students was a hugely positive experience.  I usually felt rushed to complete discussion submissions before I had really given the subject the attention it deserved. Some of the areas covered are very challenging in terms of personal beliefs etc.  and more time to think and reflect and explore new ideas could only be good.

Introduction to Western Philosophy

Forum discussions certainly were helpful. I was fortunate enough to do the course with two others who were very good at sharing their thoughts, as well as new sources of information. Their contributions were always eagerly awaited and so often contained lines of thoughts that I had not considered. The course would have been much more challenging without them.

Property to Partner

Thoroughly enjoyed the journey this course took me through. I would suggest that you could add a few links to relevant videos (eg suffragettes, Greenham Common, women in ancient history etc).  Also in final unit, and as you are offering courses to a worldwide audience, suggest amending the questions to a more global perspective.

It can be difficult to make time to follow a solo study course -

This course would work really well as if studied as a group meeting regularly to share  research and debate the topics raised.

Unleashing Your Creative Spirit

really enjoyed the informal approach and the many links offered

Climate Change
I enjoyed the general information about climate change and how the planet works to bring itself into equilibrium and the climate systems. The units involving scientific and mathematical formulas were a bit beyond my comprehension.
I wanted information on what is happening in climate change, what we can do locally and what we should be doing globally. This was all covered plus information about the planet and climate systems.
