The course content was excellent ... if there was things that weren't relevant you could skip and spend more time on things that you needed to learn. Training provider was excellent as her skill level was superb and her communication skills were superb.

I was not able to finish the whole entire course. When creating course training please make sure that it fits the allotted time (beginning to the end). We had two breaks and Instructor did not allow us to listen to the course. I had maybe another 10 mins to finish the whole course, but the Instructor said that it was 4:30pm and it is Ok and we can go home. It is not Ok not to be able to finish the course..

Mentored training actually worked quite well for me. The instructor is there in the room all the time, available if needed. A lot of material for one day, but I did manage to complete it without feeling too rushed.

It is not possible to complete a beginner's course in one day. There is a lot of information to absorb. It is wonderful that one can re-sit a session within a limited time.

To bottom line my feelings about the course: Course -- helpful but this comment is made with reservations. Instructor -- excellent !
Reviewed by 2013
The course material was far too heavy for the duration of the course. The material needs to be reduced so that students do not feel rushed or pressured with time, or the duration of the class needs to be extended.

Overall, the course has been well handled by the Training Provider. But i would expect that, somehow, there is a time allotted in the afternoon for more visible and face to face interaction between the TP and the whole class. Others may be asking questions that may not have been thought of by other learners but may be helpful.

re Instructor assessment. ques. are N/A as it was independant mentored study. Flash based training module had 1 hiccup where ctrl-b key was captured by OS and I had to hunt for alt-b to complete the module. Class mentor was unaware of flaw. I felt that the design of the module would have prevented me from completing the section if I was unable to locate alternative keystroke. Worthwhile day.

Course is very good but not enough time to complete the exercises. Should be at least another 1.5 hours longer.

Using the self-teaching method made for a more relaxed working environment. As the instructor's assistance was on a one-on-one basis I was not hesitate to ask questions.

Would prefer an instructor led (classroom) style of training over a computer based course.

I would suggest that the course manual contain more visual material (e.g. screen shots) versus words. The course was very well. I did not think I would like the on line method of training but I did. I also liked the fact that I could work through my lunch to complete the course earlier. I had to catch the go train so it worked better for me.

I only realized after completing 2 units thoroughly that there is not enough time allotted for a lot practicing. I would tell students in advance that getting through the videos and practicing later in your own time is recommended.

Enjoyed the flexibility of the "Modern Classroom" style of learning where you can move at your own pace and focus on what you need most. You can even move to the next chapter if you need help and the instructor is busy. Definitely dress warmly as the classroom was really over air-conditioned!

I loved the Adobe InDesign course but as a new user I felt there was so much material to cover and I wanted to take my time getting familiar with the program and learning about everything. I think if the class had been 2 days instead of 1 it would have been perfect!

The video - was not at all interactive - only concepts were presented. The manual completedly different from the video material. I have no objections to using different approaches but a course on any software must include interactive materials.
