"The platform is easy to use, presented well and engaging. I found the AustradeNEXT Women’s Leadership program through Cahoot Learning to be incredibly informative. The platform was effective for women to debate key leadership issues through post comments, discussion threads and live chat. Having a weekly activity made sure I was held accountable for the course.
The free-flowing debate with my peers and easy access to resources through the platform has inspired me to take positive action in my career and personal life. I recommend Cahoot courses for anyone looking for an engaging and informative platform!"
"I thoroughly enjoyed the course, so much so, I found myself on the platform out of work hours as I was enjoying the material and loved learning about my cohort from around the globe.
The moderators were wonderfully encouraging and inspiring which made it easy to engage. It was refreshing getting a diverse range of contributors for the material and the topics really tied in well together. We were supported throughout our learning journey and I felt the moderators championed us when getting comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Regarding the delivery of the material and engagement on the cahoot platform, I particularly enjoyed the analytics dashboard which helped us track our progression throughout the course and compare this with our cohort and the suggested pace. The engagement algorithm for the Beryl Wilson award was a nice touch and really did feel like a dangling carrot – great motivator!
Towards the close of the course, I was sad that it had to end as I wanted to keep engaging and learning. As such, we decided to connect with our Alumni through Linkedin as we felt we found lifelong friends through this experience.
Before this course, I felt lost and couldn’t see how to move forward with my career. Since then, this course has given me the confidence and tools to pursue many leadership opportunities. One being part of the executive committee of a local women’s advocacy forum (Women in Big Data Canberra), which looks to influence and create opportunities for women to achieve gender parity in Data Science.
Thank you so much for developing this course, delivering it through this platform and giving women a voice to support other women’s voices."
