Liked being able to listen to audio as well as read information

The visual aids and the fact you could decide whether you wanted sound or not so it could be read out to you rather than you reading it

Very easy to follow training. The way it is presented helps to make it more memorable

Divided up into small sections so you can come back to it if interrupted without it timing out or you losing track of where you were

I like the interactiveness and the audio as mentioned before I am dyslexic and it takes me longer to read the content
