Enjoyed the course immensely
I found this to be a very thorough and multi dimensional course, with a fantastic balance of mixed content presentation. This included text, imagery and videos, with references to other artists teaching in this way. It was a very user friendly presentation and broken down well through letting you know what % you had completed as you went along, encouraging a sense of perspective as well as achievement. Thank you Yodomo.
Concise and very informative.
Informative class, easy to follow and full of great tips!
The course was short but gave lots of useful information on how to plan your online course. It certainly gave me a lot to think about and consider! It will really help me in designing my own course in the future. Thanks for your help Yodomo!
