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.

Under prerequisites, Eliquo stated: ADAI101—Adobe Illustrator CS5 is essential; however, the pace of the advanced course was very fast and assumed that, in addition to ADAI101, participants had a certain proficiency / practical experience level. As such, it would have been very helpful if Eliquo had stated the minimum number of hours of practical experience needed to join the Advanced Illustrator course. At best, I received some exposure vs. learning specifics.

The introduction at each session which includes a detailed explanation of post-course support and an overview of the outline takes way too much time (upto 45 minutes on average). If you are taking the course, you already know the outline and it should only take 10 minutes to quickly go through the post-course support. People with questions can always ask during the break. Everything else with Eliquo is excellent!
