Excellent on both counts. Course and Instructor were both top-notch. This is my second on-line course through Ed2Go and it was actually easy to follow. The information provided was just what I was looking for. Thank you.
I love the teaching style of the instructor. He put a personal touch to it by using his life examples. Love the course as an "Intro". Not overwhelming or too much information. Great base of information to use everday at home or work. Looking forward to the other two parts.
Thank you for presenting this course in an understandable way and inserting the humor, I feel like I learned a lot, and this has answered my questions about Word 2010. It will make it easier at work because I have learned the basics.
I really liked this course. I learned more with this online course then I did in a more expensive class I took recently. Im happy with it.
I learned more from this course than I ever did taking in-house word classes for my former job. Very user friendly and I really enjoyed learning Word 2010.
I took this class and the Microsoft Excel beginners class and I loved both of them. I have recommended this class to other people from work. This class has inspired me to take more advanced classes. Thank you for making the material easy to learn and enjoyable.
I am re-entering the workforce after ten years of raising kids and caring for my parents. This course has really helped my confidence level and improved my knowledge of Word.
These lessons are very well explained for people that are beginners with technology.
It was great taking this course. I really learned a lot of new things that I did not even know before I started Word 2010. I have learned so much by doing these packets and the quizzes. I hope I get a good grade by doing the final exam. I will always refer back to the packets if needed. Thank you!
I want to send thanks out to our wonderful instructor for this enlightening course! I've really enjoyed it! The exam was a great way to test my knowledge and with such immediate results it was very satisfying to feel the success of completion!
