eLab is fantastic! Video tutorials were great for students who spoke English as second language and perhaps needed to review some of the lessons.

As always, your products are easy to understand and user friendly. I also like the new feature of Extend & Transfer Your Skills. The more critical thinking and project based lessons only help the student to be more job ready.
