How will you use what you have learned in this course?

I would use Braille with blind pupils within a school setting.
Currently there are no Braille users in Angus but course will be very helpful if this changes.
I will use my Braille on a daily basis teaching the child I support, and adapting material and resources for him.

What was best about the course?

Being able to work though course work at my leisure.
I liked learning Braille. I found it quite relaxing.
Easy to follow. (2) Tutor is very supportive.
Clear instructions. Very easy to follow.

What, if anything, could have been improved?

I think maybe a few weeks more to learn the course; as when you are working full time and studying it is difficult to get everything in.

Any other comments regarding the course?

Fantastic. Enjoyed it thoroughly.
An excellent course.

Distance Learning

This course was delivered through distance learning - did you find this a good arrangement or would you have preferred a different mode of delivery? Please comment either way.

Sometimes it would have been easier to be talked through some of the lessons, as it is better to be shown.
I found distance learning good, as it is something you have to work at by yourself.
Distance learning was adequate. Email address for Morag helpful for any queries.
Distance learning at my own convenience was perfect for me as I was studying for my degree at the same time.
