It has been a lot to take in but has given me a good basis for further learning.,I thought that he went through the stuff as many times as we needed, which sometimes was quite a few to fully understand what we were doing. Had a full understand of the subject, and I believe he will be helpful in the future.,I believe that it will help me lose my fear of designing web pages for myself and others.
Great course. Content was intensive, but manageable. ,Trainer (Emiliano) was great. Overall the experience was very good. His communication skills are very good.

Also for email. Thank you for a great course! :)

Very fast track! It is a good thing to have at least some knowledge of it otherwise it is very easy to get lost. ,She is very good and full of knowledge. There was no question without answer. However, because of the fast pace of the course, she really goes fast and it is very easy to get lost. She has patience though to explain one by one. In this booklet, we would find the technical explanation of why do you use certain tag and not another, what is a tag for etc etc. In a very easy to understand kind of way... ,Probably.

Very good. Good pace.,Trainer and assistant had the experience and communicated well. It helped to have 2 trainers.,It will help me development an internal website with a colleague for the company we work for. Give me opportunities.
Fast pace and everything covered in detail with great support if you get stuck!,Both trainer and assistant obviously know the subject very well and helped resolve issues if students made any errors. Trainer made sure everyone was up to pace. Those that were ahead were set further tasks so they weren't bored whilst waiting for everyone to catch up. Communication was brilliant - if you didn't understand how something worked, we were provided analagies until everyone understood. Made us think and problem-solve for ourselves to test and ensure we had understood, but was on hand if we got stuck. Overall - brilliant!,I understand more about coding (more importantly "clean" coding!) and am now able to find things in code a lot better. This should hopefully mean I can help our webmaster with her job and pushes me one step further to working as a web designer rather than just graphic designer.
I have learned a insite about the Dreamweaver which will be helpful for me while I learn more about it online.,Emiliano is experienced instructor who is willing to help whihc any queries. I had received a reply email even 10 PM whihc I was struggling.,Well I want to become a IPhone App Developer and when I contacted Dotpeak I was told to start from basic like Dreamwever so that I will have some knowledge of hand coding. In nutshell this course has given me a enough insight of coding which I have start getting confident.
Very professional and didactic. VERY VERY HELPFULL!!,I would rate both Sooji and Emiliano very skilfull and helpful. Communocation skills exellent.,I will design my own web sites ,both the professional and the charity one.It is of great value to understand the concept of web designing and SEO even if you are not a professional designer, because you realise how the others are looking at you AND YOU CAN PROMOTE YOURSELF in real life.
The course manages to balance the right amount of information with the right pace. The high amount of information is given to you in an understandable and practical format, at a speed that allows you to take it all in but with out giving you the option of being bored.,The trainer took the alien concept of Web design and layed it out so I could finaly see html and css not as a jumble of symbols but a practical puzzle that I can now fit together. The trainer took what is a different language and made it understandable.,I will now be able to effectivley carry out projects that I do for myself at home and for my university on to the internet. This new found skill will give me a new platform in which I can display my work and reach new audiences.
Good introduction to HTML & CSS,Knew HTML & CSS very was was able to communicate ideas and principles clearly,Should not need to bring your own paper & pens - should be provided. Could be improved by using SMART interactive white boards would enable tutor to save and send information written on the screen.
good,very good,its going to make me rich!!! ha
A brilliant course for beginners, it has really helped me understand HTML and CSS and i feel confident with taking on personal projects on my own.,Emiliano was an excellent tutor! Really easy to get on with and very helpful. Every lesson was fun and I left feeling that I had learnt a large amount.,I feel that this course has been a valuable start to my web design career and I feel confident that I will be able to design my own website. This is a brilliant start and now I understand HTML + CSS I can develop my skills further by studying further at home.
