Just an FYI-I gave the librarian my final review yesterday, but I wanted to write that the 2 instructors were very patient and
informative. They covered all aspects of Facebook and I was extremely satisfied with their information. My purpose was to get more comfortable with Social Media and I accomplished this.......thank you again,.,,Jamie Dewberrry

Instructor was easy to understand. I learned how to perform new functions in excel. However, I felt that some of the calculations to perform were a little advanced for Excel I. I would like to perform basic functions usiing the Excel toolbar. Overall I enjoyed the class.

Informative, got to understand the point of view (sorry) for the seeing impaired. It makes little difference in the film itself except for high action levels, where there is a bit too much narration. Maybe not great, but better than average, need a "sort of great" button.
