    Great Course Very Easy to Follow 4

    All the videos broke up on occasions. Easier reading method such as two continuous pages as with Microsoft Word would have been better

    Digital marketing course 3

    Mostly good: accessible, straightforward to understand, but giving enough detailed info to make you think you are learning. However, sometimes more detail on "how to do it" rather than "what you have to do" would have been good. Also, three enquiries about how to access support materials (as advertised) went either unanswsered or unsatisfactorily answered. I still have not received them.
