I have used the system before & it is very user friendly.
I liked the fact that the module narrated when it was the beginning of a new step. This helped me to retain the information.
That it wasn't just reading everything and there was a lot of interaction
It was all very enjoyable and I would highly recommend this organisation to anyone seeking similar training.
I liked the clicking for more info as I could guess what the info might be before being given the right information
Broke down a lot of information easily by reading it to you and by being able to click on things for more information
Its very easy to follow very well explained, I would recommend this course to others. It was also easy to memorize. Enjoyed doing this course
I liked learning about the facts of what I should know when a customer asks about the food sold. I found this useful, as I now know my responsibilities as an employee
I enjoyed doing the modules as they were well presented and very informative. The idea of downloading summary pages is excellent as these can be used as references when doing the test etc
Very easy to navigate and good feed-back along the way. Wish I could have been taught like this at school
I thought that having the characters talk through some of the points made it easier to remember the information
