This was my first time using Webucator. I really liked the personalized attention and that the instructor was able to incorporate my website into the classroom demos. It made it much easier to apply some of the concepts as it relates to how I will be using them.

This is not what I expected for a web-based class. I loved that the class size was so small and that we were able to have as much interaction with the instructor as we did. Instructor did an amazing job! I Definitely would recommend Webucator to my co-workers and friends.
