“Before I enrolled in KOLT 101, I had already read the former students’ comments about the course. The academic skills I obtained throughout the lectures exceeded my initial expectations about KOLT 101. I wish I had taken the course earlier!”

“Before I took KOLT 101, I was anxious when delivering presentations in the class. Through the effective presentation techniques I learned in the course, I have overcome my anxieties and now I am confident when giving a presentation.”

“Earlier, I did not know how to take notes effectively in the class. I used to copy everything I saw on the board, and write everything I heard from the instructor. With KOLT 101, I learned the techniques that helped me take short and meaningful notes during a lecture.”
