training was cancelled again for the 5 or 6th time. It is beyond words how a course is advertised and then not provided over and over and over. I took a prerequisite course so I could take this course and I am not happy.

This was an excellent course. The only criticism I have is that the material was covered very quickly, and there were no handouts that would allow students to remember or recreate the steps that were used to complete the assignments. So, now that I am back home and trying to do some of the same things in Adobe After Effects that we did during the course, I have trouble remembering exactly what to do (e.g.: what icon to click, what drop-down menu to select). Step-by-step handouts would be very useful!

The only reason I gave the seminar schedule two stars was because I was participating remotely from the west coast so a start time of 9am EST was difficult to manage. Otherwise, good course all-around.

I thought the instructor did a good job in keeping the class moving despite have most of us online. There were a few times the class went on some tangents that were not relevant to all parties. We didn't use the files provided to us prior to the training. I feel that I would have felt more accomplished if I had put together a cohesive course as part of the session, rather than try this and play for a bit. I don't really have anything too concrete to go back and refer to as I begin to create using Storyline.

This survey is not set up correctly to evaluate the sessions attended virtually (as I did). I suggest the instructor check in with the students who are training virtually more to ensure they are at the same pace as the classroom students.

This was online training so can't comment about facilities. The trainer really was excellent in his execution and explanation of course material. His pace was perfect and explained things very well with enthusiasm throughout the day. The only thing was being virtual training, there were moments when the mic was not clear, fuzzy or inaudible.

This was a great course, lots of information given but quite useful! The instructor is very knowledgeable, helpful and easy to follow. I wish the class would be 3 days instead of 2 days since the last afternoon content was a little rushed. Although the important things to know where learned on day 1 mostly. Great place and looking forward to taking more courses!

The content was excellent, and we had some opportunities to apply what we learned; however, because Illustrator has a steep learning curve, I needed at least another half to full day in a "lab" to fully implement what we learned.

A course manual would have been helpful - something to follow along with during the cours and make personal training notes and tips which you can refer to at a later date.
