What You Say

"I wanted an online training course for environmental responsibility but couldn’t find what I was looking for. As the University already uses a number of Marshall E-Learning online courses, I approached them to ask if they had any plans to develop a course on environmental responsibility. They were very responsive to the idea and we started to draw up some ideas for a course outline. A dedicated course developer was assigned to the project and I worked well with him to write the detail of the course. It was really good to bounce ideas with the developer and then see these materialise. The course needed to be very interactive and engage with the user in a fun way and I believe we have achieved that. The course will now be used as an induction course on environmental responsibility for all staff and students. Marshall E-Learning has been great to work with and has been thoroughly professional throughout."
