I think the best thing is the materials only versions available to PhD students, which has allowed me to brush up on skills I should have and save my course vouchers to learn new skills crucial to my degree. It also gives me the opportunity to learn outside of my area if I have the time, and make connections to other students and researchers within the department. I'm very glad that the resources remain on blackboard after the courses have run, and I think they're presented in a logical and easily accessible manner on blackboard.

A great way to manage the course in your own terms, in your own time. 100% recommended.
