The content of the course was very simple and accurate and contribute to fulfill its learning objectives in a very easy way to understand. The course does belong to a basic level of LEED-knowledge.
From the learner experience, I would suggest to take this course to all of the professionals who are just getting familiar with LEED and its basic concepts (Building information Modeling, Commissioning Process, Pre-Design Phase Activites and so forth). Integrated Project Delivery has been considered a very important procedure before LEED v4 was launched, but now its importance becomes more notorious when the process is now a credit with his own category in all of the LEED v4 Rating Systems. For this, it is vital for the effectiveness of the whole LEED Certification and Documentation Process to follow the Integrative Project Delivery from the earliest stages of the project and this course helps with making this clear.

A basic intro into sustainable buildings. The presentation over emphasizes the use of BIM, making it feel that this is the only way to utilize IPD. Further, there is a fundamental misinterpretation of Value Engineering indicating that this process is harmful to a project and merely cost cutting. Use of Value Engineering should be a mainstay of successful IPD throughout the project informing team members of all aspects of a product or system's life cycle.

This course is a simple overview of some new aspects of the design and construction industry - specifically Integrative Project Delivery (IPD) and Building Information Modeling (BIM). It contains good, basic information on LEED and "general considerations before you build", which would be especially helpful to contractors and those on the construction side of the industry. The course discusses one method of doing IPD, though other methods exist, so do not be dismayed if you don't fit the model described exactly. The "soft skills" (i.e., dealing with project team members, designating single PM among many, encouragement of each other, collaboration and sharing information) are the most valuable part of the discussion and could be applied to most projects and teams.

This is a good intro to basic terms and concepts in sustainable building design and construction, including integrative project delivery. Those new to integrative project delivery, BIM, commissioning, and third party green building rating systems will benefit from this course. The presentation is covers several rating systems in addition to LEED and provides several additional resources within the slides.
