      I've taken two EmergingEd courses, Cybersecurity Foundations and Frameworks and Machine Learning Foundations and Frameworks. Working for a tech startup without much exposure to either disciplines, I found both courses so incredibly helpful in learning more about the foundation and frameworks for each one. The Cybersecurity course added immediate value to my role at work and even my personal life. It had me do a lot of self reflection. The Machine Learning course was little more challenging, and there were many foreign topics that I never even knew existed. It made me really appreciate the hard work my colleagues do but also have a better understanding of the work they're presenting to our team.

      I recently took EmergingEd's Machine Learning Foundations and Frameworks online course, and I'm thankful that I did. As a non-technical business professional in the startup world, it's become important for me to have a baseline understanding of what machine learning is, how it impacts business decisions, and how to communicate with data scientists and data engineers about the work they're doing. Luckily, I found EmergingEd for this need, and I was not disappointed. It gave me a fantastic overview of machine learning and its business applicability, and helped peel back the intimidating veil of mystery for me. The course is high quality and rigorous, and it definitely tests your knowledge with different games and assessments. I'm really glad I found this course.

      I am so happy with this course. The way the course is structured it is conducive to my learning style. I always thought I needed to be in a classroom setting to absorb information, but EmergingEd offers multiple learning paths. The takeaway PIN resources are quality tools I use at work every day. I am proud to share my digital badge on social media. This course has opened the door for me to register for more online courses at EmergingEd and continue adding more skills to my resume.
