(4.50 out of 5) Rosemary M [ 17 February, 2020 ]
Belinda has been great. I feel that I have learned a lot and hopefully will be able to apply what I have learned and build on that to develop websites in WordPress. Will definitely recommend this course.
(4.00 out of 5) Margot E [ 17 February, 2020 ]
Very comprehensive course. Will rely on materials to step through. I will probably need to repeat it as everything in the course was completely new to me. Belinda is an excellent teacher with real-world experience.
(5.00 out of 5) Daniel G [ 17 February, 2020 ]
This course was even better than the last course as it went in depth on how to create and use backups, plugins and widgets.
(4.80 out of 5) Nicola B [ 17 February, 2020 ]
Found the content covered fantastic, a useful extension from the Essentials course. I will comment, those without prior experience in coding appeared to be disadvantaged to some extent. While the instruction of CSS and php for customisation was informative, I would have preferred a sample of setting up a website for a client eg to a colour template, certain fonts etc as if a case study. Rather than random, which is less applicable. Thanks.
