A review from one of our learners:

I didn’t think I would enjoy e-learning. I am more used to face to face training and thought it would be boring with no-one to talk to. BUT I was wrong! I got some really good ideas from this course and some new activities that I can try to engage the community. It also helped me understand the difference between engagement and participation which I had not thought about before and helped me to see it from the communities’ point of view not just what I wanted to achieve. I’m really impressed.
