Donna, I just had to say thank you. You did a wonderful job with this course, and your showing us some tips and tricks along the way about ID made me realize that my switch to this Adobe product from Serif was worth my time and money. As a result, I have completed my new magazine template and realized that your class has helped me immensely. In fact, I will be creating the premiere issue using the template with great confidence this coming week, and I am going to really have a blast doing it because of what you have taught us. Your hands-on approach to trying things out was helpful, and I learned enough that ID is not so overwhelming and complicated as I thought it would be. I am actually enjoying ID a lot and having fun with it. Plus, it all looks so very good and professional without doing a lot of work!"
I want to thank you, Donna, for this awesome class! It has helped me learn new things about InDesign, even though there are so many things to learn with this program. I know we haven't scratched the surface, but what we have accomplished in this course is a lot. You're an excellent teacher and I hope to take another class of yours in the future!"
I've been using Acrobat for several years, but I learned a TON of new things, beginning with the first lesson. I use this software at work, and have already implemented several of the new skills I learned through this course - creating portfolios for the various projects I am working on, using calculation fields in forms that I create, and, just for fun, I created a personalized "Approved" stamp. Halfway through the course I realized that I own Ms. Baker's How-to books, which I chose because they are well-written and easy to understand. I found this was true in this course as well. The lessons were easy to follow, and packed with a lot of information. I found this course both fun and challenging. Taking it was one of the smartest things I've done - both personally and professionally. Thank you!"
I thoroughly enjoyed having Donna Baker as an instructor. It's nice and refreshing to have an instructor who is an SME in the subject. I enjoyed the class and her interactions with students. This was learning, encouraging and fun. I liked the structure in the lessons. They were very interactive and made me want to learn; they were fun and enjoyable. I also like how as this is an "Intro" class, Donna took you through the basics of virtually exposing the student to all areas of APX. It is not the usual type of intro course that I would have thought it to be. It was much more than I expected. Now, that I know the basics of many areas of APX, now I can explore more easily the content and know what I am doing. This course has made me feel comfortable with my abilities to utilize the lessons learned and explore further to broaden my knowledge."
