    • Terry: Wow, yes, it appears that all the videos are broken… something wrong with today perhaps? We’ll look into it.

  1. It’s not just the videos that are broken!!
    I’ve completed David’s course on InDesign CC 2017, which was first class, as usual. And today, I finished updating my presentation skills, i.e., Keynote, PowerPoint 2016, not forgetting, of course, InDesign. All the tutors were excellent, however, was not! When it came to the practice exam for PowerPoint 2016 they actually labelled it Microsoft Outlook 2013!!! What is wrong with them? Don’t they know the difference between PowerPoint 2016 and Outlook 2013?
    The same kind of thing happened when I took Mike’s course: QuarkXPress 2016 , as the lack of proofreading diminished the excellence of the tuition and course.
    With the greatest of respect should employ proofreaders because their content leaves such a lot to be desired!
