I am really enjoying being part of the online community in An Cosán. I started out with the intention of just doing one module and am now my fifth!! The virtual learning environment is well equipped to enable learners blend their studies with work and personal life. Thanks to An Cosán, I have met and got to know people that I might never have crossed paths with otherwise and learned lots from them and their experiences. Also, because our studies were largely conducted online, we experienced no disruption as a result of the necessary Government restrictions on travel due to the COVID-19 crisis. That has certainly been a welcome “normality” in the midst of uncertain times!
