Technically, I thought [the online course] was brilliant. I felt the computer was a team partner with me, not something to feel threatened by. It was also very authentic, in that I knew what was expected and if I came up short, the computer informed me and wouldn't let me move forward until the expectation was met. ~ Victoria Ahumada, Teacher, San Dieguito Adult School
