Very easy to use. The structure of it was well set out which made it very easy to read and understand

Interactiveness. Especially when the 'challenges' break up a rather large module... makes it less boring to do and also satisfying when I get the answers correct
GW 20/07/2015
I liked the questions part way through to check knowledge. I also liked that key information was read out as this helped me take it in
NP 03/07/2015
The narration was good. Reading can often switch people off. I liked the fact it spoke to me. Occasional questions to complete. Multiple choice quiz at the end
LL 22/06/2015
I liked everything and the way the system is easy to follow. The module is also comprehensible and very rewarding in the sense that a person can learn how to help another through difficult times
ZR 05/06/2015
Having an audible voice reading out loud the general subject overview for each page, which allowed me to concentrate of the specific subject matter being presented
SB 06/05/2015
I liked the way the course was interactive - I thought it would just be a body of text to read through with a test at the end. It was much easier to assimilate the information the way it was presented with bullet points etc. I also liked the little challenges in some of the units
JC 29/04/2015
It was informative. I liked the visual aids and hearing the information. I liked that the sections were separate which gave time to consider what had been taught.
CT 16/04/2015
Very easy to navigate, there was no jargon and where there were key words, an explanation was given. The module itself was in plain English and easy to understand

I liked the set out of information. I would however have preferred more interactive elements where questions were posed for the learner to answer
RP 19/02/2015
The system was easy to use and the content was pitched at about the right level. Not too complicated but allowing me to re-familiarise myself with the basics of this subject

I thought the information was concise, the information was enough to absorb and gain the information needed
SM 07/01/2015
I found it a very easy and good way to learn about safeguarding. It was very clear with the points. It didn't just have it all written down which allowed me to take in more information and learn a whole lot more.
