At first I enjoyed learning and trying to pass the tests. Until I got to the video part of the cognitive techniques on anxiety and mindfulness. I have a very hard time understanding what the lady is even saying in the videos. I've tried to watch it several times and she rambles on and whatever she is saying is so hard to understand I can't learn any of those parts. Maybe just stick with the reading it and learning or getting someone who can talk so we can understand them.

I am having a hard time understanding and hearing the videos and I have my volume turned up and the instructor in the videos is speaking really quickly and so I am not enjoying my course so far. I have my volume settings turned to the highest quality level and I have never had these issues before listening to anything until this point. I hope that I can earn my certificate.

UI is simplified yet there is no tutorial (trial and error). Charts are very difficult to read on mobile - many charts read like you're learning how many syllables a word contains. It's very jarring! There are also quite a few grammatical errors. There are a broad swath of jobs skills to choose from however they appear random and overly basic with no structure. Adding a goals tab would benefit. Slides, thus far, are technical and offer little in the way of example, especially the "how."
