Attended: Solidworks I

Good introduction to the basics. I would recommend it to someone interesting in learning the program. It's not guided by a syllabus so much as it is what you make it. I would recommend having a project already in mind for your first class, and then spend the semester building on that idea.


Attended: Introduction to AutoCAD®

I have very mixed feelings about the AutoCAD Intro with Chris Ramirez. Chris really knows all the ins and outs of the program, but his teaching method is more geared towards people who like to play around and "practice". I tend to learn more with structured assignments, especially with computer programs I've never used before. That being said, the lectures are well structured, clear and informative. Considering the length of the class (13 sections 3hrs each), I would expect to have a more solid grasp on the material that was covered. Hopefully I took good notes!


Attended: Marketing II: Social Media and Viral Campaign Marketing

Was a bit long and not interactive enough.

Joseph C.

Attended: Drawing for Product Design I

GReat class if you're back looking to understand the fundamentals of product sketching. The professor is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. If you take this course I'd recommend not skipping on any classes.

Attended: Drawing Foundation for Interior Design

Ike the professor is a true industry professional. I went from not knowing how to represent an Idea/design to drawing accurate plans, making scale models, learning how to represent color, how to choose materials, and knowing the tools the professionals use. Highly worth it if you want to start your career

Fitzroy Vernon L.

Attended: Introduction to Revit®

Insightful and engaging class, the instructor went the extra mile to make sure everyone was on the right track in understanding the program. I want to sign up for the advanced class soon, hopefully said instructor will we available.

Federico S.

Attended: Compelling Business Writing

The professor is good, and most of the material was interesting and relevant to me. Unfortunately, I think some of the potential was lost on me because of the group of participants. They were all in very different places than me professionally, and the feedback I was able to get and give to them was not very relevant.


Attended: Color Theory in Practice

I thought it was going to be a class more for professionals trying to advance their career but instead it was full of weekend warriors.

Rosaria C.

Attended: Autodesk 3ds Max 2017:Modeling,Materials & Rendering II

Hi, the course was really interesting for me and the Instructor was really skilled . However it could dedicated more to consolidate the progression of the program. Also I would like to receive a Certificate of Attendence. Thank you

Carol H.

Attended: Collage Camp: Principles of Collage

The class was very educational as to the different components of collage - shared in an informal, non judge mental style that allowed all attendees to work in their own style..the class was small and allowed for individual feedback from the teacher...the length Allowed for a good amount of hands on practice.
