The phrase "whole nother" is not correct English.

Very informative. It made me think more of the challenges of eDiscovery and being able to obtain the necessary data. I especially enjoyed Mr. Cunningham's section on the emojis. It really hits the points of just what is constituted as communication and how it's interpreted.

Extremely informative course, and I learned more from this 49 minutes than I have from a whole chapter of Info Technology in books. Also, I discovered the slide deck provided with each course, so I am downloading them to an EDI folder on my local desktop. Hamburger emoji ref was entertaining!

I failed the quiz at first because of a computer error. Not sure if that was on my end or elsewhere but hope it does not impact my final score :) Also, I cannot speak for others but I would find it helpful to have the name and title/company of each person speaking shown on the screen thru out video.

It would be nice on long classes to be able to start up where you left off and not have to restart the class.
