This has been a good learning experience. I now know the different project management tools available. I have a good understanding of project initiation and how to determine the success of a project.



Excellent content, wonderful use of multi-media interaces and check points to keep the pace moving and great introduction of different stories and people with real life perspectives and experiences.

There needs to be some more emphasis on accomplishing peer graded assignments. Some folks arent getting their assignments graded in a timely manner.
