Reviews and Quotes from students
"I haven't had to do anything on a computer since I graduated college in 2008 (except make a resume here and there), so I was feeling rather behind in my tech skills. The course was laid out in a way that was easy to understand and easy to keep up with." "... great instructor. You can tell he knows the program in-and-out. When I had questions, instead of just verbally answering them, he would do a demonstration. For visual learners like me, it makes a huge difference. Thanks!"
I had self-taught myself Storyline previously and knew quite a bit about the program. This class taught me best practices and how to work smarter and not harder using features that I didn't know existed. This is going to make working in Storyline in my job a lot easier in the future! 15 out of 10! Kal was great! He was patient with everyone regardless of their familiarity with Storyline and always genuinely seemed to care about the learner experience. I'm hoping that I can take the next level class in the future and if so, would love to have Kal as my instructor again! It was great to have this class held virtually. I have three screens and being able to see the instructor's screen on one of mine and work with Storyline on one and the design document on the other made it really easy to pay attention and still focus on what my instructor was seeing.
Sign me up! Instructors were knowledgeable and the class materials and tutorials are amazing! I have so many more tools in my toolbox now for Storyline! Definitely worth it! Kal was incredible! He connected with us and made the training engaging and fun. He showed us relevant skills and tips that I am using every day in my projects for work.
Amananet's Articulate training is exceptional. It is the type of mandatory training that you will love to attend! As always, Kal was outstanding! He provided clear step-by-step instructions, tips, and shortcuts, and always highlighted the best practices for online module development.
This was a great introductory course to Storyline 360! I especially appreciate the opportunity walk through each step in creating an e-learning product. Kal is a patient and effective communicator when demonstrating how to get something done in the Software. As a tactile learner, I found his teaching style to work well for me. I was very nervous to take the online course after the in-person option canceled due to the COVID pandemic. Kal's teaching approach put me at ease. I feel confident I'll be able to create high quality products for my company.
It was the first time that I used Illustrator and its work space. However, the instructor was very patient and guided me through each tool and activity.
This course was fantastically organized, and all the activities were purposeful. I was so impressed with the instructor’s knowledge.
Learned a lot! Would love another training from Kal! It was awesome! He knew everything about Storyline and answered all the questions. The food was great!
Excellent! I learned so much! I am looking forward to sharing this new knowledge with fellow colleagues and students. Very knowledgeable about Storyline 360 — was able to answer all of my questions and provided great clarity.
[The instuctor] has a plethora of knowledge of Adobe Illustrator. She placed the lessons so easy to follow and even went into depth for every tool in Illustrator. Outstanding!! Location is key and classroom equipment is state of the art. Well done!
Kal was a very effective teacher. He was a clear and engaging speaker, and he made the pace of the class very easy to follow. I appreciated his friendliness and willingness to answer all of my questions. Very clean facility with nice amenities. The staff members at the café were very friendly.
Content was exactly as mentioned in the course description. Even though I attended the class online, there was never a moment where I felt like the Trainer forgot about us! Great job! He was great! Kept the course interesting from beginning till the end!
Wonderful class! I learned so much and highly recommend for novice learners. Kal took him time to demonstrate the functionality of Articulate Storyline while also being very practical. The class was fun and kept me engaged!
Urzula was a great teacher! She was so patient and worked with everyone individually to insure everyone stayed at the same pace. She did a great job teaching the foundations of the software and then using those practices in bigger projects. Thanks for providing lunch! The space was easy to find and a great facility!
Excellent experienced teacher. Excellent quiet facility with good computers and comfortable chairs
The instructor was the best! The instructor's ability to relate and describe material in an understandable fashion plus her ability to apply the content to real world activities
Kal was a great instructor and teacher of the content. His knowledge and passion of the material made the class enjoyable and easy to understand. Kal was willing to slow down and explain anything if a person needed assistance and did an excellent job of showing how and why certain parts of the material were done a certain way. I will definitely be taking the level II class and will make sure that Kal is the instructor for when I attend.
One of the best instructors i've had for any type of software course, this beats Lynda by a mile.
Great location and amazing building.
Jason was an excellent facilitator and helped me learn a lot about a tool I have almost no experience with.
Great course [Adobe Illustrator and InDesign], instructor was super helpful and helped work at everyones pace and thoroughly explained everything. Will definitely be taking more courses here in the future. One of the best instructors i've had for any type of software course, this beats Lynda by a mile. The cafeteria is awesome to help bridge the gap between learning during lunch and snack time, it helps me focus more and break things down.
I was Storyline self taught. This class, Kal showed me ways to do what I was doing but in a third of the time. Fantastic class for beginners and those who know a little and want to learn more! Highly recommended.
Enthusiastically involved instructor. Very helpful and attentive
Instructor was very familiar with topic and was able to explain in a very clear and understandable delivery. [He] was phenomenal! Online delivery offered a very comfortable learning atmosphere with no distractions.
Jason is a very thorough and enthusiastic instructor. He maintained a good pace in the class, stopping to check on progress frequently and helping individuals along the way while still being able to cover all of the material. He is very knowledgeable about the software and industry best practices, and was able to answer all of our questions related to software, hardware, and professional practices. I really enjoyed this course and I am considering additional training for future needs.
Awesome course! I learned everything I hoped to and more. Kal was great at explaining things clearly and pointing out pros and cons of various approaches. I'd come back to AmanaNet if I needed additional training on Articulate 360. Easy to find. Comfortable classroom. Supplying meals during the class from the in-building cafe is a really nice touch.
For All the online tutorials you can watch online these days, nothing beats sitting down in a class and learning from an expert hands on... Through and happy to go into detail when questions are asked... lovely [Herndon, VA] location easy to find.
The facility was conveniently located. It was close to a number of hotels, eating establishments and other conveniences. The room was comfortable and the lunch was excellent.
Kal was incredibly helpful and went at the pace of everyone in the class. At the end of the class, he was able to help me with a project that I will be working on. It was a great course.
The course taught me how to work smarter and more efficiently and liked the reference materials that came with it. I really liked the free food and drink
Excellent trainer, it make easy to follow the training.
Kal was great! The speed of the lessons and pace of the training was great for all levels. I highly recommend this class.
Course explained everything i needed to get started. looking forward to level 2. Jason was amazing. Really informative. Information was clear and thought out.
Amazing! Would recommend to anyone purchasing Storyline
Very good instructor with patience and extremely high level of proficiency.
Instructor was great and fun
The course was fantastic!
The course was very interactive, and made me feel confident that I was learning the material instantaneously. Great instructor that was easy to approach with questions. Made the class enjoyable.
Jane was great. Enthusiastic and good at pointing out additional tricks that may not be mentioned in the book.
Great course, the facility was clean, spacious, and loved the food provider. Jane was a great instructor. I will definitely take another course with her.
This course is great for a experienced forms designer. The instructor is great at teaching this class. He is a very active participant in all class discussions and work group activities.
Mike was amazing. He really deepened my understanding of Ai and made me understand the what ifs and whys of what we are doing. He was always testing my understating along the way. Excellent and will recommend it.
Kal was the best! He was patient with those of us who weren't as experienced as the other learners. He was able to explain concepts in a way that made them easily understandable.
Coming into this training with 'basic' computer skills, I was able to easily follow the class and apply the skills being taught with little to no confusion. Thank Kal for a wonderful learning experience! Very pleasant! super knowledgable and I felt I was in good hands the entire class.
Dan is an excellent instructor. He explains the material in a manner that it is easily understood by all trainees. I definitely gained a vast amount of knowledge that will carry over into my daily duties. Very clean and comfortable learning environment. And big thanks for meals included.
This class was the final piece in what I needed to complete the overhaul of my organization’s forms, to include Section 508 accessibility compliance. Dan is an expert in Adobe Forms and creating them in LiveCycle. He uses ‘real world’ examples and provides a collection of scripts and library objects that can quickly and easily be adapted to the forms I will be building/overhauling.
Kal is an excellent instructor. He went over so many topics without missing a beat. I wasn’t expecting to learn as much as I did from this course, but Kal made the whole experience flow smoothly. He even showed us how to perform functions in the previous version of the program…simultaneously as he taught us about the most current version. All around a great learning experience. Best online class I’ve ever taken. I’m considering signing up for part 2. Thanks, Kal!
The Instructor’ was great! He took us through step by step and answered my questions before I even asked them! This was a very well thought out course!
Our instructor was very helpful and used his real-life experience to give examples and provide insight
Thank you, Kal. You did a terrific job of highlighting the core Storyline functionality. I especially appreciate how you expertly pivoted between demonstration and hands-on application. I am much more comfortable with this software now and by the second day of training, I found myself correctly anticipating the correct sequence of steps. Money well spent, thank you, Kal!
This was a great class! There was a wide range of software functions discussed for an intro-level course. The instructor kept our audience engaged and was respectful of everyone’s time & inquiries.
The Instructor” was excellent, very thorough. His instructing format made it so much easier to learn as oppose to following a manual in class. Left class very satisfied in all he taught us. Great class! Made me want to run back to my office and create e-learning!
The training put me in the driver’s seat after the first day. I have what I need to move forward with my projects and create e-learning materials my customers will benefit from. “The instructor” clearly knows his stuff
Incredibly informative, the instructor was very patient and gave clear instructions.
The “instructor” displayed professionalism and was very clear in explaining topics. He was able to answer questions and provided clear and easy examples for students. As a trainer, I can appreciate the effort and applause, other trainers, as needed. Good job!
Great class and Jason was so proficient and a AE true professional.
I’ve got a great start with Articulate Studio 13 and I now feel ready to tackle my next project using e-learning.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course! I know that I will find many applications of these Photoshop techniques in both my forensic professional life as well as my personal life. I had no idea that Photoshop could do so many amazing things! I was very impressed. The examples used were very helpful in demonstrating the techniques being taught. It was super easy to follow along with the instructor and made my learning much more permanent having worked through the techniques as they were being taught.
Major strengths of the class was the excellent instructor. Major weakness of the class were none. Jason makes learning fun.
We are new to the field of creating online training and the instructor made everything very easy to understand. After taking this course we are excited to begin developing our online training and then using it to populate our training library for our new LMS!
I think the instructor did an amazing job … He was a perfect speed and did not have a problem reviewing when something was missed.I am confident after this class that I will be able to begin designing online programs immediately, okay, I will start on Monday!
This was a great course. I had tried to learn Captivate on my own, so “the instructor” went through stuff I already knew very quickly during our one-on-one session, then went in greater depth on the stuff I didn’t know. He really filled in all the gaps for me! I will be taking more courses from Amananet and recommending to people I know.
This was an awesome experience. I took away a vast working knowledge of Storyline. Thank you.
The class was enjoyable and very informative. Learned a lot. An instructor was patient and answered all questions going over the lessons and even back tracking when need be. If I need any more training courses in the future I'd come back here!
The examples were extremely useful and relevant to what I will be using Storyline for in my work.
What a great course! I’m so glad that I decided to take this to fine tune my skill set, I feel much more prepared to create our LMS modules moving forward, and cannot wait for my upcoming projects. Kal was a fantastic instructor, he was very calm and approachable in all areas, I never hesitated to speak up and ask a question as he made all questions feel valued. …I did not leave disappointed whatsoever, as I received all of the guidance and direction to fine tune my skill set and have some fun along the way.
Outstanding instructor. Dan was very patient and walked me through all applications…
I was skeptical about participating in a “live” online training for software that my job depends on…from the connection with the instructor, the ability to keep up within this webinar training environment, down to the interaction with the class. Within the first 5 minutes, I knew this was going to be a great experience and completely worth the cost and time. It is truly live and questions are welcomed. I really find no weakness with the class other than you don’t get to see who you are speaking to and that is absolutely not a weakness. [The Instructor] was very personable and made the 2 days of training go by quickly by keeping it very engaging.
Major strength is the ability to get questions answered immediately. Instructor’s ability to remote into student machines very effective.Very patient, good sense of humor, obvious mastery of the material.
It was amazing to get to use photoshop for forensic purposes. I was only familiar with photoshop for color correcting and improving the very basics of pictures. But it was so informative and incredible to discover the various tools within this amazing program that can be applied and used for criminal investigative purposes. This was a powerful class and anyone who is in the field of criminal investigations or digital forensics would 100% benefit from this class!!!! I really like the real world applications and the instructor used real examples and problems that forensic video analysts like my self and other criminal investigators run into all the time. But to discover how photoshop can uncover those lost clues was mind-blowing
This is absolutely an invaluable class to those interested in (or in need of) learning the essentials of Photoshop. Fantastic instructor.
What an AWESOME instructor. He was clear, concise and patient!!! Class Size – There were only two of us in the class. Loved the feeling of one on one training. Weakness – NONE
Loved it. We had a class with multiple levels of experience and [The Instructor] handled questions and do-overs with grace and humor. Was really great. Thanks
Loved this course and can’t wait to start creating my own eLearning! This course is perfect for the training professional ready to take design and development to the eLearning level without breaking the bank. The program and training is super user friendly!
Great presenter – organized, knowledgeable, articulate, interesting to listen to! Good project-based learning model
This was a great class. I learned everything I need to get started on my e-learning project. The instructor was highly knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and engaging. The course was fun, the time flew by, and I am equipped to get results.
This class was great! Learned a lot and the instructor was easy to understand, knowledgeable and patient. It was fun! and I recommend it to others!
LOVED the interactions (with the instructor) and ability to practice right along with the instructor. If any issues popped up he could address them and give pointers. “Kal was outstanding! Thorough, but not overwhelming.” “It was a great benefit to walk thru that tasks at the same time you were demonstrating it.
Excellent instructors, excellent book. I learned a lot!!! Loved it! Very hands on!
This course was exactly what I needed and trained in my most preferred method, which is to build from the ground up. It’s great to learn this material from a talented instructor but to also learn from someone who creatively utilizes the skills regularly is invaluable. I will definitely be back and will recommend to others. Thank you SO much!
Kal was the number one strength. He goes at a pace that allows one to follow, absorb & experiment. He uses an I do, We do, You do methodology – very important to learning. He is also engaging and enthusiastic…
Excellent course that was good for novice to intermediate users of Storyline. I was brand new to the course, but Kal worked very patiently with me, answered all of my questions, and provided needed support and resources so that I was able to review and practice on my own. I feel well-equipped to continue utilizing Storyline on my own. I have worked as an educator for many years and felt that Kal did an outstanding job in his knowledge, clarity, and enthusiasm, especially in an e-learning environment. Many thanks!
Excellent training – you did a fantastic job of keeping us all together even though we had very different levels of knowledge coming into the class. I learned a lot and am looking forward to putting these concepts into practice. Thank you!
Best training I have ever had. Thanks for a great class
I began the class without any experience with Articulate Storyline, and by the end of the two-day session, I learned a ton of information! The Instructor was great, very skilled with explaining concepts and answered our questions along the way. It was really helpful to see the skills visually and then to try them yourself using storyline on your own computer. A great way to learn a new program. Overall, a wonderful class for anyone with or without Storyline experience! Thank you very much!
best online class I have participated in
Loved the ability to create something together. For me, that’s the best learning model. Excellent class.!
I taught myself Articulate Storyline in a very short period of time to scramble to make a last minute compliance course for our staff last year, so when we decided to keep working with it to create more courses, I asked to get official training so that I could learn the right way and better ways to use the software, and am so glad that I found this one! This was extremely informational and helpful and I feel so much more confident now to use it than I did before. I can’t wait to make my next course in Articulate Storyline! Thank you, Kal!
Wonderful hands-on course. The instructor was prepared with great material and got students involved and excited. All learning outcomes were met (plus a few extras) I would recommend the course and instructor to all users. Instructor customized training based on users involvement and interest and bumped up the level of explanation based on input from class.
Dan was an excellent teacher and geared his curriculum to the needs of his students. He catered to student’s varied experience levels and spent extra time with me during the breaks. Dan has a good sense of humor and managed the classroom environment so all of the students enjoyed learning the program.
Great approach to e-learning. Gained a lot on the basics and feel confident in taking on standard approaches to building a course in Storyline.
I loved the size of the class. Very inpidualized attention. Thank you very much.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and very evident with his experience with Articulate Storyline and other tools. He was very professional and addressed each of our individual needs very well. His knowledge of different applications is a valuable asset in order to answer questions and make comparisons across multiple platforms. The level of this course is perfect for those who have a basic understanding of Articulate Storyline and it builds on that foundational knowledge.
It was great having such a knowledgeable instructor here to answer questions and walk through problems with us. Alan made sure that his class was engaging and could relate to our company’s specific expectations for Captivate.
No weaknesses ‘in this training’ The course was 2 full days but moved quickly and covered all the basics. Interaction with an instructor was good…pacing was amazing.
Enjoyed the class immensely. Kal is very knowledgable and a great instructor. Learned a lot of new features to make life easier
Enjoyed the class immensely. Kal is very knowledgeable and a great instructor. Learned a lot of new features to make life easier
I liked the fact that we got to create the course along with the instructor….The instructor was exceptional.
I was verbally shown how to use this back in September and that was it. Now Seeing it and doing it – helped a bunch!…Dan made the course down to earth, not the normal “read from a script” training! It was great – he knew what he was training and answered everyone’s questions. Thanks Dan!!!
Loved the class, Dan was awesome and made it fun. I wasn’t bored at all. I really learned a lot and enjoyed it!
My major weaknesses were triggers & variables. After the course, I understand how & when to use these features!
Mark Snyder’s enthusiasm for his field of expertise was infectious. He was a straight shooter who told us honestly which parts of this would be painful and which would be easy and fun. I also appreciated that he recognized that there were a couple of designers who were a little bit more right-brained than the programmers, and took care to speak to us in our “language” when he knew we needed to relate something to our worlds. Overall a skilled educator. The exercises were well chosen and from leafing through the books they seem very thorough as well
This class was really great, the pace was perfect and allowed me to grasp somewhat complex things quickly…
Awesome training! The course content, layout and supporting facts were all in align. I really appreciated the instructor confirming all participants coursework was working before proceeding to the nice section…
The instructor was very knowledgeable and not only provided practical hands-on knowledge but a wealth of supplemental resources and valuable tips for general e-learning solutions. Very good “bang for your buck” class.
I had about 30 days use of Storyline before taking the class. I had already built a few eLearning modules with quizzes and other interactions. But within the first hour, I was excited about the new things I was learning to improve my current (and future) courses; and continued to learn throughout the sessions. Excellent examples were provided to enhance learning.
