I loved that our instructor had students take turns using driving the application. I appreciated that she troubleshot various issues (for example me recording in Chinese.) I liked the quiz/review at the end. Very nice job. I'm so glad I took this class online [Adobe Captivate Beginner]. I was skeptical about doing an online class and found that it was better then a in-person class because I had the convenience of not traveling, yet the hands-on-on and personal attention.
