Very well organized and very informative. Each separate section was very well discussed and overall, the entire course covered a wide range of topics in not only biobanking but regulatory issues as well.

This was the first time I registered (and completed!) an online course. Typically I prefer traditional courses with "real" people. I really enjoyed this course and know that I learned a lot of applicable knowledge. While I thought that some multiple choice questions were tricky (simply an inherent problem of MCs), I really liked the final exam because it was on a recent topic and showed how applicable the course content is!

I loved this course, even if I spent more time than anticipated (or foreseen) on it. Just a small note: some little details are really "american" and for european people, it was a little bit difficult to follow (some abbreviations as an example). But anyway, good experience.
