      Introduction to Ecopsychology

      I was happy with the content of this course, but not having suitable people around to interact with, I was unable to carry out the discussion tasks, except with myself. My only criticism is with the functionalities of the website, where it is impossible to know whether you have actually started a course and the course system had no way of knowing when or whether I had finished it. I was expecting a quiz but no quiz appeared.
