Frequently Asked Questions

Content was delivered very clearly with excellent materials provided to practice all the skills discussed. It would have been good to get onto more advanced material earlier in the course to allow more time for that. However, I appreciate that there was some discrepancy in knowledge/ability across the group.

I found it easier to watch the master screen and follow and take notes, than to try to keep up with the trainer on my own monitor and inDesign file. The course had three people for the second day so tuition was almost individual and there were plenty of different things to experiment with which will be very useful, eg placing photos, writing style guides. My own needs are quite specific and limited in terms of my actual job but it was good to see how much can be done so quickly. I will rely on the notes as well afterwards.

Although the course was excellent, I understand this was in fact an introduction course, I really needed at least an intermediate course. No fault of XChange, I think it was booked wrongly at our end.

Phil was absolutely outstanding. I can't fault his teaching method. I take time to learn new things and the way that Phil recapped core concepts over the two days worked really well for me. He has a fantastic attitude, was very patient and actively encouraged questions, and I love asking questions!

As I am in the Design team, and the course was ran for the Content team, I seemed to understand more of the basic uses of the software, however I found it beneficial to have a very refresher and a wider clarification for the scope of indesign's ability. Doug was very helpful and willing to answer any questions, particularly when they may has strayed from he specifications of the course. I feel like I now have a better understanding of the software that I can utilise in the day to day responsibilities for my job.
