Diana's Online Students Rock!
What they said...
Not quite sure about online training yet? Last week, Diana taught a certified FCP X class. That may not sound that special, but this class was taught live online and to students in a virtual classroom that spanned the globe. From Australia (Hi Peter!) to Brasil, (Hey Marcelo) from New York (Yo, Janelle) to Minnesota (Hi Craig), students came to our classroom “in the clouds” to learn FCP X. And we all learned something else in the process – that we provided an effective group training experience on FCP X without four walls.
“This really answered a lot of questions, and while I already had both 1st and 2nd editions of Diana's book, the interaction was priceless. I'm no longer confused by the FUD that's being spread and know that I'll be using FCP X and siblings for a long time to come. Being able to chat without interrupting the class flow really adds to the experience. And, I didn't have to deal with TSA to take the class.” Tim J.
