    Hello From Las Vegas

    I like the fact that your ED X course gives busy people the time to complete the homework. My employment as Associate Dean of General Studies requires that I perform administration duties as well as teaching.

    Therefore, there are weeks when I do not have the time to do the assignments. You homework schedule is great.

    There is a Medical Statistics course I teaching and I am borrowing heavily from your course.

    On a personal note: I at the University of Deft in 1983 as a grad-student . I have been to many towns in England, Germany, France and Holland and Deft was my favorite.
