Here are a handful of comments from participants in 2014 which indicate some what they got out of the course.
Teacher, USA: I know the world is changing around me at a rapid pace. I strive to stay up-to-date so that I can help my students be prepared for the world they will live and grow in, to be the best they can be. This course was perfect. It helped me see what lies ahead.
Deputy Principal, Australia: Though I did this course in physical isolation, for future University of Melbourne MOOCs, I would be inviting other staff members to join together to watch video lectures and discuss, utilising them as school professional development.
Principal, Italy: I found this course very challenging and much more meaningful to me than I ever dreamt of when I enrolled.

The videos of the students using the digital tools for CPS were invaluable …
Career and Technical Education Coordinator: This course has been both eye opening and life changing for me... I am taking away…a new perspective on what is happening in the world. I am acutely aware of the need to be proactive in preparing students for their role in the global community.
Teacher, Australia: I have already recommended it to other teachers.
University teacher: I didn’t expect this MOOC to help me with my teaching strategies, and it did. I have used this information with my students and both assignments I’ve used in my classroom. It was a great non-expected outcome.
Teacher, United Arab Emirates: I was able to develop a skill tracker using the progression strands. I was able to write diagnostic remarks for the students in order to write in their reports.
Teacher: Professionally it
has allowed three of the teachers at our school to connect and work
on the course together.
