The synergies portion of the course was weak, in that it was too generalized. It was only addressed as a discussion and high level overview.
I recommend showing examples of projects ( which was done), list the synergies specifically, and then show the actual examples of those synergy points. If time is a concern, then reduce / edit the Q&A portion.

When taking the quiz for this module I noticed a couple typos. In one question the Steep Slope Protection credit was misidentified as SLLc3 (should be SLLc6). In another question, asking about SLLc3 the following excerpt from the question "...requires at the project be.." should likely read "...requires THAT the project be...". Hopefully these comments will help fix the typos without giving away too much information about the quiz questions.

Hi Adam,

Thanks for bringing this to my attention (and in a way that indeed did not give away too much information). Both issues have now been fixed.

Take care,

Melanie
