Great for the intermediate learner. You would find new terminologies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The materials are easy to be understood and the teachers are communicative.

Keeps crashing, not able to submit the assignment.

Cannot type in a normal sequence.

Places the cursor at the start, after every word it resets from the left corner of the typing box.

Great course, but issue with assignment submission, not able to gauge my ability.
