Very Good.

Only 3 students attended, and we finished at 3:35 instead of 4. In my view, the course should end at 4:30, with the option of lasting until 5 if full. More do-it-yourself exercises should be incorporated throughout the day; at our course, we were asked to create and show a slide presentation in Power Point (Level I) at the end of the day only. Also, we learned about many functions, but not so much about the all-important importing of web-material and inserting text beside these. Even inserting just descriptive text would have been a good exercise. This would have helped to train us to create presentations for diverse audiences at one course. The instructor, a wonderful instructor, still chatted a bit too much and ended too early. Pace the assignments, and include a bit more meat. It can still be a fun day--which it definitely was.
