Meet the people who love FutureLearn

I enjoyed everything. I am always against gender discrimination. As a teacher, I always fight for women's rights. I educate my female students to stand free in their own foot. I like to study the experiences of women from other countries and about women rights. I heard a little about the suffragettes but in this course, I learned very much about them and other brave women, about their fight. Thank you for this course.

As previously, FutureLearn excel themselves with this great little course on social media. It is accessible, lucid and interesting. The course leaders walk you through the steps in a fluid fashion, checking for understanding before moving on to the next stage. There is a helpful use of multi-media resources, and quiz tests to enhance the learning experience. Highly recommended!
