(4.50 out of 5) Rosemary M [ 06 February, 2020 ]
Belinda was great, so helpful and knowledgeable. The information that I have learned over the past 2 days will, I'm sure, prove to be extremely helpful when building and managing my websites.
(4.90 out of 5) Margot E [ 06 February, 2020 ]
I could never have learned what I've learned in this course no matter how much I would have tried myself. Great course.
(5.00 out of 5) Katherine B [ 06 February, 2020 ]
Course was what I was needing. I had a little bit of experience in WP prior and this will keep me going.
(4.80 out of 5) Nicola B [ 06 February, 2020 ]
Found Belinda's style highly insightful. Good explanations of not only what to do, but why. If anything, a bit more information on localhosts, options that are alternative to WAMP and that method of setting up a site before putting it online.
