Previous course participants said:

The feedback on this on-demand course has been 96% positive

"It was good to hear the thoughts and ideas of the participants from when the course was recorded. It made the course more engaging (multiple voices) and I felt I learned from them as well as Ingo (as I would hope to do in a face-to-face or "live" participation course)"

(Learner feedback August 2021)

I found the exercises about different learning styles, the PowerPoint presentation advice, and processes for opening sessions and engaging the audience useful.  The resources were also helpful and I'm pleased to have these for future reference.

(Learner feedback, Aug 2021)

“The trainer is engaging, encouraging and relaxed and clearly knows a lot about training. I especially liked finding out what sort of a learner I am (Reflector dominated!) and the list of useful free software that we can use to create surveys, quizzes, animations and more.”

(Learner feedback, May 2021)

"I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the TTOT on-demand course.  I’ve found the course very informative and appreciated the opportunity to do it at my own pace.  I’ve particularly enjoyed the introduction to some new tools.  During the month I’ve had access to the course, I had a project meeting for the EU project I’m involved in so I’ve already had a chance to put some of them into action!"
