    Fiona Chapman United Kingdom Great course for beginners and for those looking to brush up on some basic skills they may already have. Although as some have mentioned. the course is rather dated, given that the internet is changing daily. Having said that, everything is still applicable, but it would be useful to mention the difference between creating your own site or using Wordpress or Weebly etc, as many individuals and businesses utilise these sites now. Thank you, this has been really useful to me. 2016-01-15 10:01:05

    Daniel Ogah Nigeria Many thanks to the organizers for putting up this phenomenal website and a profound gratitude goes to all the facilitators/Instructors especially Chris Farrell whom I personally refers to as "the Algorithm of website developement".

  • Derek Hegarty
    Derek Hegarty Ireland Well, what an experience. I have spent most of today with Chris going through the Modules on how to create my first website and it has been an amazing experience. This is in particular to the ease with which Chris guides you along each section. I am retired and about to commence a new business in the new year 2016 and I am preparing now to set up my website. I am much the same with computers as Chris described himself when he started off i.e.Surf the net, send and receive emails and look at things on you tube. But now i understand a lot more, i have now purchased my Domain and while i have not yet engaged a host i know now how to do this. the next stage is designing the website and then publishing it and i can't wait till tomorrow. Good on you Chris i had a great day.Thank you. Regards,Derek 2015-12-15 18:12:39
  • William Robert Da Silva
    William Robert Da Silva India I found Chris Farrell extraordinarilly communicative, clear and persuasive. I wish everyone who runs the programmes are as charismatic in their communication: lucid, to the point and deliberate in their speed. I would probably return to this programme again to ascertain the gains and start on the Website. 2015-12-04 09:12:48

  • Jaelle Candice
    Jaelle Candice United Kingdom That was amazing! I thought I wasn't going to pass the test. But I've got 100% thanks to a good teacher. Watching the videos I've learned so much. Thank you Chris! (also for the tip "control+z", manage to bring back this review, ;-) ) 2015-11-07 18:11:13
  • Mario Meldre
    Mario Meldre Estonia This course is an absolute MUST for beginners. I really recommend this for every one who wants to create their first webpage (for what ever reason). I think this is the first step you absolutely need to take if you want to start making money online but don't know nothing about it yet. So this is the place where you should start. Thanks Chris and thanks ALISON for this great step-by-step course! 2015-11-04 16:11:09
