Dearbhla’s mock course

Is it possible to have an online learning community where the learners can come together to talk about the course and answer each others questions etc?Like a comment section maybe?

Are we able to do ‘polls’ here?

Thank you for enrolling on this short course – Dementia- what is it? and What’s brain health got to do with it?

I’ve designed this course so that by the end of the course you will have be able to
