Yadav -- I don't have a full course at my site. There is a search bar on the site you can use. But searching in Google for specific topics, with my site name, sometimes works better. As far as Testing, here are all the articles on that: http://theelearningcoach.com/category/elearning_design/tests/

Re: "Are motor neurons the basis for communication?" - No. (And it's called the mirror system, BTW) They're sensitive to what we see and what people and things do but they're insensitive to meaning, i.e. why or how X is happening.

Social connection, mentalising ("reading people"), and harmonisation (aligning ourselves with our interlocutors in order to interact and talk) is far more complex and likely uses most of our brain at once. It's a highly cognitively demanding task. Try listening to some speak and reading at the same time, e.g. checking your emails while attending a meeting. How much can you take in and make sense of what they said?

I'm not a neurologist so if I can spot these flaws, they must be pretty glaring errors.

Do you check your own work before sending it out to reviewers and testers? You should.
