Testimonials“This class has been super helpful in preparing me to bring my vision to life. I do not consider myself tech savvy, more tech comfortable, and the idea of creating a website was something that intrigued but overwhelmed me. This class was perfectly placed and paced to help me accomplish what I was hoping to. I appreciated being exposed to a variety of platforms, and left with the freedom to choose the one that I felt was right for my project.” —TINT Student

“This was an amazing online class. I appreciated all the support and resources that you have provided. I feel like I have learned a lot in a short amount of time. The information that was provided in your class was very helpful for me, because I am very much a novice when it comes to building anything that is online. Technology is a challenge that I continue to try and grow in every day. In this digital day and age, it has been vital for me to grow along with the changes that have come. However, with the resources provided I am beginning to feel more comfortable with creating my website. I feel that this class has better prepared me to create an online website/blog.” —TINT Student
