My Experience with Course

As soon as I decided to join the course, I signed up and created my profile. It gave me an opportunity to diagnose the best suited learning plan. My plan was ready with 89 lessons. Unfortunately, my google account got deleted so I decided to delete the Digital Learning Profile and signup again for this. It took more than 2 weeks (due failure of identity verification of new account against the old account) when "Digital Learning Unlocked" allowed me to sign up again.

Finally, I completed my first lesson "The world goes digital" on 04 October 2017. Content of the lesson (video) is great and gives knowledge how the world is getting digitized and how it benefits if we decide to take our business on the digital platform. I took the online test at the end of lesson and the result was displayed immediately. I am planning to complete my second lesson soon.
