Visual Communications reviews
This course was easy and understandable. The questions were straight forward
I loved it! Very informative and easy to understand.
Was quite hard
the milestones and and final a little tricky with wording kind of makes you second guess yourself. This class was very informative and I enjoyed this one very much.
Very Informative, I definitely enjoyed all the images that helped me make the connection between the terms.
Very quick course. Not hard at all.
Very awesome! Wonderful individualized pacing and great content.
Very quick class (took 3 days, total of 6-8 hrs) and I would say quite easy but some of the questions may be tricky. Good luck!
Some questions appeared confusing but an easy & quick course.
The Visual Communications course was very beneficial to me as a returning student. The level of difficulty wasn't hard but it showed me the importance of being organized and taking clear notes and having a consistent study schedules.
Open book. Very easy course. Can be done in one day if needed. As a FT working mom, I completed it in a few nights.
I enjoyed the course so much that I ended up finishing it quickly. Four stars because like other courses here, some of the Milestone questions seemed a bit random.
It was hard, but it offered a challenge
I was little skeptical at first. I thought this course would be more technical like a graphic designer. It was not. I learned a lot and it was fairly easy.
For me, the wording is so confused in lectures and questions.
This course is fun and simple. Easy to read through.
Very easy course, got it done in a few hours. Highly recommend if you want a days worth of work for one course.
Technical information enjoyable to learn about marketing, concepts and uses. Very well organized, logical and easy to navigate.
I thought this course was a great start to get back into college coursework! The course material was effective and the questions were well suited to the material being covered.
