    Daniel Igoche Idega Nigeria The course is very good but i suggest that the Windows Movie Maker should be completely replaced with efficient video editor like Adobe Premier Pro and the likes, many Windows this days don't even have Windows Movie Maker on it 2016-07-07 10:07:00
  • Karimu Saka
    Karimu Saka Ghana lt was a nice experience with you but my limitation is that l did not have enough time to go through the lesson, in the future l hope taking more courses and have more time and perform very well , this course appears to be new to me, and over here internet instability and access at my place of work are also contributing factors. 2016-04-15 12:04:20
