What do others think?

‘This class was very informative and will be very beneficial for creating interesting presentations. The possibilities are endless. Kathy Van Pelt was an excellent instructor. I particularly found the video which explained how to modify animation in lesson 11 and the additional training session "Get Visual with SmartArt graphics" at the Microsoft training website (in lesson 6) very helpful. Kathy taught this class step-by-step which was easy to follow and understand. She also answered questions in a timely manner. The supplementary material was also useful for expanding the lessons that Kathy taught. This was the first on-line class that I have taken and I shall take others to learn new skills.’
