Writing for the Web and Mobile

“I enjoyed the collaborative and interactive nature of the day. As it was a small class, there was a lot of opportunity to all have input, and to view and critique each other’s websites and learn together. Grant asked us for input throughout the day as well as imparting a lot of knowledge as well. Grant obviously has lots of knowledge in this area and is an engaging presenter. He took people’s ideas on board and used natural segues to other content when the opportunity arose rather than strictly following the set order of the material. That provided a nice natural flow of learning. The course I attended was interesting, full of great information and presented in an engaging and relaxed way. The location is lovely, and as an organisation they seem to have a good sense of humour.”
