The instructor was amazing and knowledgeable. There were many students that were at below the baseline for the course at it held the other students back a bit. Also the equipment is a bit outdated.. glitchy cpus and a blurry projector. Overall I learned a lot and the class was worth it, but a few things could have been improved.

I didn't realize just how beginner this class would be. I would say this is for people who are not comfortable navigating online and do not know what blogging is. If that was me and I took the course I would give it 4 stars. Personally I just twiddled my thumbs for 2.5 hours because I did not want to disrupt the class by leaving. The instructor was not very enthusiastic, which is why I took of one star.

Very informative with clear instruction. Took the time to make sure we understood and if we didn't, was not impatient when providing further explanation. Extremely professional!

Outstanding! Jimmy was thorough, well prepared, and thoughtful in this presentation and answering our classes. What a gift! We suggested there should be a Part II.

No one showed up for the class. And the library staff had no idea what happened. Very frustrating after traipsing across town in the cold.
