    While the “Podclass Kitchen” experience is new for the fall 2021 semester, our previous experiences have been featured in universities across the country. Here is just some of the feedback we have received about our previous digital learning experiences…

    “This was a great learning experience. I enjoyed the creative aspect of the Podclass. I got to do things with marketing and design that are much more helpful than just providing a professor with a written report. The feedback from the support team was quick and provided great assistance in guiding my team to produce a quality product.” – Tracy DeBernard

    “I really liked Podclass! It was a different experience for me, but fun. The modules were challenging, but not so challenging that it took away from the experience. I thought that the Podclass support was very responsive to all of our questions.” – Nichole Coryell
