This was an awesome class. I plan to recommend it to some of my fellow teachers in my state. You are a wonderful teacher. I hope to take another of your classes in the near future.

I have no design experience and this course was simple and straight-forward enough for me to follow. It was very well put together and the information was given in a logical manner that wasn't overwhelming. I especially appreciated the conversational tone of the lessons and that Donna worked to make the language as simple as possible to follow. On the couple of occasions when I had questions, even dumb ones, they were answered quickly and thoroughly. This was a really good online class.

Introduction to InDesign CS5 is a well organized and challenging class for the beginner. The author seems to have put much effort into creating a course that provides the student with a thorough instruction of the application's essential features. Thank you.

I really liked this course. It was very useful and had tons of great beginner's knowledge to this Adobe program…Within a day the instructor would reply and encourage the additional learning and questions I had!...I would recommend this course to anyone who needs a very basic and brief intro into the InDesign program. Hopefully, I can take the intermediate course one day and see what treasures I can discover there! Thank you for a wonderful online course!

Good-bye and thank you for a great course. I am currently working on my booklet and it is looking great thanks to what I learned in this course.

Thank you, Donna. I've benefited from this course. It's the first online course I've taken. I hope the next course I take has a professor as actively engaged and helpful as you've been. I haven't always been able to keep up with the pace. Although, being able to take the material at my own pace is one of the benefits I see in online class. Thanks for explaining how to download the Lessons so that I can revisit them later. Also, the index is very helpful. Thanks, again!

I am amazed at how far I have come in 12 lessons. When this class first started, I struggled to even know how to set up documents, choose colors or set text. While I still have a lot to learn, I am amazed at my comfort level in InDesign now and how much I have learned.

I love Donna's writing style. Her lessons were fun and encouraging to read. I felt like she was right there talking to the class…Her little encouragement and comments along the way really make reading through the lessons a fun experience as well as educational.

Hi, Donna, thank you for the course. As a teacher for the past 34 years, I really appreciated your tone, humor, and thoroughness. I did get stuck a few times but always figured it out or wrote you with a question. Being able to save a copy of the course for future reference is very valuable, plus all of the documents, images, template, etc. you provided. I feel like I can go back and relearn as needed and apply things we learned how to do. I also now have a much greater appreciation of the power of InD, and I know there is much more we did not cover. Best of luck to you!
