Introduction to Woodworking: Side Table

Attended: Introduction to Woodworking: Side Table


The class is affordable and good if you’re a beginner. However, the instructor might have anger management issues. He was constantly yelling and snapping at students over simple issues most of time(some were actually his fault) and only stressing people out more when there is indeed a serious issue. So although I liked the work itself, that’s the reason I won’t proceed to a more advanced course offered there. The assistants are awesome so I gotta be fair with them and thank them. Also the other students were great to work with.

I was a bit nervous to take this class because I'm very much a beginner at drawing in general, let alone fashion drawing. But it was a very laid-back environment, and Professor Broadway was so encouraging of everyone, no matter our skill levels. I had so much fun and was sad when the last class ended! I also learned a ton from both the professor and other students in the class, some of whose work was very inspiring. I definitely plan to keep up with this new hobby, and might take the class again next year. Would definitely recommend it!

Social Media Influencer Marketing 101

Presentation for this 3 hour course ended in 50 minutes. Nothing insightful; just very general and obvious points that anyone off the street could advise you about social media influencer marketing. This course was so pathetic that I felt like I was part of a prank by CourseHorse to see if someone who knows nothing about social media influencer marketing could teach a course about social media influencer marketing.

It was definitely a entry level course. We covered basics, but not much else. I felt there was too much time spent practicing. Yes, we should practice, but since this was such a condensed course, I wish I would have learned more.
