    Found this very difficult to actually take part in and wasn't very well instructed.

    Excellent content. With just a few technical difficulties to overcome, this will be a rewarding and informative course. As with one other reviewer,I am recorded as completing only 75% of module 1. I have completed the quizzes but have been unable to access course content when returning to finish the module on a different date. Once these glitches are sorted, I will be highly recommending this module.

    Content of the course was excellent - very informative. Just a couple of technical things; 1. When you click on a glossary term is takes you to the glossary page with the full definition - however, when you click on 'Previous' it doesn't take you to the page you were working on, as expected. 2. Is there any chance that the correct answer is displayed after completion of the quiz? 3. When you click on 'Return to module' after completing a quiz it takes you back to the top of the page of where you were which is slightly confusing - would be better if this link took you to the bottom of that page or possibly the start of the next section? Thank you for a great introduction to Dyslexia and information on Scotland's line in terms of support - can't wait to do the next module.
