Overall I thought the instructor did a great job keeping a virtual training engaged, that is very hard to do. He did a good job reinforcing relavent PM concepts to the BA role, which is helpful. One area of improvement - I got disconnected and on the last day because the session started, it was no longer in my inprocess learning queue, it had moved to completed. I had to call in to get it figured out. instructions to user might be helpful.
