This class was just what I was looking for. There is so much more to WORD that most people never explore because we just use the basics everyday. This is an advanced class, so you must already be familiar with the basics of WORD. The sound quality is crystal clear, and the instructor is easy to understand.

  I chose this class looking for tips to improve my ability to connect names with faces – a true challenge for me.  I learned several other tools to help, as well as many other tips and methods for other memorization needs, i.e., lists, numbers, etc.  Some systems were familiar, such as mnemonics, and some were new to me.  I learned about the “pegs” system, and the use of “loci” methods. There is...

I highly recommend Conflict Resolution 101. This class presents a well organized and systematic approach to ways of identifying and resolving conflict in the workplace, school, home and any situation in which there are broken personal relationships.  The examples and exercises are excellent and timely.  There are many suggestions, and also many places where opportunities to ‘think outside the box...
