I have attended several conventions and have taken many courses from you and Ann. I found the online course helpful. Unlike normal class room settings, I enjoyed the fact that I could pause you until I was ready to move on. (That wouldn't go over so well at conventions!) I look forward to purchasing other online courses. Carol, VA
