It would have been beneficial for the instructors screen to have the capability of zooming in on parts of the workbook.

The course was informative but fast flowing. I love the idea of being able to re-attend at no cost.
Reviewed by 2016
When there's a very small (2-3)audience at the training, I believe the instructor should reach out ahead of time to find out if any attendees have specifics they would like to have covered as opposed to an overall general content taught. It was not of great value as it was too general.
Reviewed by 2015
The course was very informative and useful, but the time could have been used better. I could have learned everything taught in an hour and a half, and the rest of the time would have been better used doing exercises to really ingrain the information into my brain.

I only wish that this course lasted longer than 2 days. We barely scratched the surface and what we learned only raised more questions. It would be nice if there was a version of the course that lasted 4 days so that we could explore more features and options, more thoroughly.

With respect to the Training Provider, they offered what seemed to be a very detailed manual; however, the instructor followed his own agenda for teaching. Although I'm certain the same material was covered (plus extras, which are appreciated), by not following the manual, it makes it more difficult for a student to take notes. It would have been easier to add notes to the manual, as needed - than trying to capture subject, background info, and the relevent point I am trying to capture on a loose sheet of paper.
Reviewed by 2014
The course was good,however, the instructor was way too dry. He didn't engage the students very much, except to ask if there were any questions which made it a little boring.
Reviewed by 2013
While the instructor was delightful I did not feel she had a good enough grasp of the program. There were often times when a student may have missed a step and she was unable to intuitively know what they'd missed and so the entire class would have to start from the beginning. Unfortunately this class left me more confused than when I'd walked in, and also left me less confident than I'd been after Level 1.

It was really hot in the room - I know this is a persistent problem with clients - some like it hot, some like it cold! We didn't get to all the topics - I guess I'd rather have this and really understand the topics we did cover; but I needed chart work which we didn't get to.
Reviewed by 2013
The course was short but our instructor was very good and explained the concepts that was easy to understand. I like the fact that she didn't just give us the course textbook and have us go through it and instead had her own training agenda with the textbook serving as a supplemental item. I didn't have too much experience with SharePoint 2010 and I didn't have any issues keeping up with the course. Would definitely recommend this course for those that are interested in SharePoint Workflow.

The instructor, JASON HALL, had a fluent, practical, hands-on and knowledgeable style of involving the partipants directly with the software. This was vastly superior to laboriously going thru the course material linearly page after page. We didn't doze off and he answered questions and immediately dealt with individual issues in working through the residential housing project example. I would take another class from Jason Hall.

The instructor was not helpful as she just read the book to us and went step by step. I could have just bought the book and did that myself. It needed REAL world relevance
Reviewed by 2013
The overhead screen was difficult to see. The instructor went very fast and did not check to ensure that we were all up to where he was - this caused us to go back several times. More consideration needs to be made to ensure each participant is at the right place, can see the board, and the instructor needs to slow down so he is not continuing to instruct while we are catching up, as several of us missed a few things.

this course could have been cut into half a day with the material we covered. 80% of the day was spent with the instructor talking about his life, and irrelevant things. Although he had a great energy and spirit.... The day was a bit too long. Half day course of basics would have been perfect.
Reviewed by 2012
Instructor was very self-absorbed and spent more time talking about himself than Microsoft Word. We paid a lot of money to take the course and would have benefited from the instructor talking more about Word rather than hearing about his travels, the food he ate, the airbrushing on his daughter's skate board , his clients, how busy and important he is, his hiking plans for the weekend, how his buddy was at his house drinking his scotch, his best friend's battle with colon cancer, his daughter's travel future plans to base camp 2 of Everest, his dogs personalities, his friend in the police force, his upcoming trip to Thailand, and the worst of all....his divorce proceedings. It was such a shame that he knew so much about Word but had a problem actually staying focused and teaching us about it. He had a couple of minutes to complete the material and broke into another story instead, he ran over the 4pm class time frame and never finished going through the material unless people wanted to stay late!
Reviewed by 2012
With all the valuable insights and topics to cover, I feel that this should be a two day course; we only got through half of the course book in the one day. While the rest of the material could be done by self-directed learning, others in my class agreed that they wouldn't have time to learn the rest on their own time. The course description indicated that I would be learning all the material but we simply didn't get that far. The computers, desks, and chairs were certainly not ergonomic. I would encourage the facility to consider this next time they upgrade their equipment & furniture.

I did appreciate the last part on Sharepoint Developer and did like the hands-on approach. Otherwise it was a good course and I felt that it was valuable to me.
