After having two kids within 2 years, I had to leave my medical practice and work part time. I saw your posting of http://www.myicourse.com and I have begun my own online university to teach medical continuing education. My husband (lawyer) went through the user agreement and the site and it appears they are as free as they say they are. I have very high remarks for this site and the potential is unlimited. I went to Google and found others have nothing but good things to say. Thanks so much for the recommendation! This will help me keep my mind active (baby talk and mommy & me classes take a toll) until I get back into full time practice. Not to mention making some money. Miriam
