“Thoroughly enjoyed the eLearning essentials course. Was great to take a step away from the computer for a few days and listen to other people’s perspective and experiences on eLearning design and development. The course was facilitated in an open-minded and engaging manner and the trainer (Eve) was very patient. Plenty of food for thought for future eLearning development.”
