Course Reviews

(4.30 out of 5) Michala [ 10 August, 2017 ]
This course has been very beneficial, helping me to understand how to use more of the functions available in Captivate. We have explored many examples and activities which I feel will assist me further when developing eLearning modules at work. I've really enjoyed the course, and have felt the benefit of having a smaller group, enabling more question time, and focusing on the functions we'll be using more in the workplace.

The course significantly increased my knowledge of Captivate and gave me an understanding of the more advanced features of the program. The small group size was a real benefit and the instructor was excellent. I feel confident I can move on and develop engaging e-learning within my workplace.

This course was great in that it built on my previous Captivate training and showed me new ways that I can use and get more out of Captivate.
(5.00 out of 5) Richard I [ 02 August, 2017 ]
Excellent course. A bit fast paced due to the amount of content, but I do not find that a problem. John was able to answer all our questions and maded time to find answers to unexpected questions.
