Great class! Ed was very knowledgeable and super helpful

The course was very disorganized: there was no structure I could discern; the project files were sometimes missing so we couldn't do any work; the teacher's monitor was unreadable so it was impossible to follow what he was doing; the only learning aid we received the entire class was a single page printout of some keyboard shortcuts.
