What Tavaana Students Have to Say

The best aspect of this course was being able to take part in an online class where people from all over the world came together at one set time, and where the professors make themselves truly available, just like in a real class. We could send in questions whenever we wanted, and the professor would consider and discuss them all with great care. All the participants could share their views without fear. I hadn't considered such a possibility even in my dreams.
