Impressions about the piloting
- Participants were very satisfied about the course, they never imagined that they could attend it, that the computer is such a friendly environment. They were afraid till they managed to handle the mouse and understand the orders of the buttons.
- There was a high motivation for attending all the 8 provided sessions.
- Sometimes they asked for comments regarding the questions.
- “This course opened to me a whole world”. ( Constanta, 53 years old )
