Hi Kyma, I am sorry to hear that you felt that way. May I know which slides or topics you noticed it.

Good course. Covered material in an easy to follow and entertaining format. There are few technical corrections, such as misspelling process on one of the early slides and duplication of sound near the end.

Technical Director , Gensler

I think the content could be delivered in a more effective way.. the quotes from all of the professionals are a bit redundant and just tend to make the course longer. I would omit most of them.

A lot of information...maybe too much and it would help if the slides had more content rather than been mere lists. Helpful but long.

A lot of information to absorb. I wonder if it would have been better to break this up in multiple sessions.

The slides are not that useful in themselves. A transcript would be more useful.
