J'ai personnellement adoré ce MOOC. La plateforme était de qualité, grâce à des fonctionnalités avancées telles que l'évaluation par les pairs ou la messagerie privée. Mais ce qui m'a le plus plu est le serious game qui m'a permis de mettre en pratique les connaissances acquises dans les vidéos de cours. Je recommande fortement ce MOOC pour tous ceux qui veulent vivre une expérience d'apprentissage unique !
