What Designer Users are Saying

"Scaffold Designer gave us a checklist so that everything was covered - all the main components of a course that need to be created were spelled out. It easily walks you through the course development process, and, if you get stuck, the notes guide you.” - Christina McKay, J.D.

“Instead of doing what’s easiest first, the faculty member will progress through a logical process. And, the most important thing is that there is a parallel structure throughout the course - anyone using Scaffold Designer has a comprehensive map.” - Rachel Waite, Au.D.
