This course is excellent for any instructional designer wanting to get into elearning. Erika the facilitator was excellent at showing me how to use Captivate providing me with lots of hands on practice. Erika is a brilliant facilitator with loads of practical experience and I would take another course with Erika again. I now feel confident with using Captivate 9 and building on what I have learnt.

This course was pitched perfectly after an initial Q & A to assess learner needs. It was delivered with insight, flexibility and competence by John who clearly has a wealth of knowledge that he was able to impart.
(5.00 out of 5) Claire W [ 13 October, 2016 ]
This course was highly engaging and customised to the needs of the learners. John was an extremely knowledgeable facilitator able to relate specifically to our questions and made the course one of the best experiences I've had with software training. It was so beneficial and I feel that I have learned so much from having John facilitating.
