I really enjoyed how the coordinators kept us engaged in the conversation using mentimeters and breakout rooms. It was interesting to see the answers of other participants as well. It would have been difficult to capture all of this if we were answering these in a face to face class. I felt very fortunate to have coordinators who was actually involved in the process of the formulating the guideline one way or another. I was surprised by how they were able to address the needs of both the beginners and people with some experience. The best part was having two coordinators when one is delivering the course the other was able to clarify our queries which were great.
