Putting together a Drupal course for remote learning is not easy. Frank did a great job in organizing the content and lectures in such a manner that made it relatively straightforward to follow and fun to learn. There is a lot more Drupal beyond this course and I look forward to hopefully a part 2 or intermediate level course soon

I learned so much in it and now ready to set up my first Drupal website. Frank is an excellent teacher. His lectures are very well written and easy to follow. Frank is very knowledgeable about the material and quickly responds to students’ questions. Definitely, recommend this class to anyone interested in learning CMS.
Glad you liked the class and learned a lot…Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Frank did an excellent job guiding us through installation of the software, navigating the core, adding modules that improved functionality, and giving us a glimpse of the power of Drupal.
I learned more than I thought I would in this class. My goal was to have a working knowledge of Drupal’s architecture and functionality so I could work with a programmer to create the functionality of the site and then I work with the client to build the site content.
I am not a programmer and this class was understandable to me. I would like to take an intermediate class and learn more about themes, panels, and layout more fully.

Terrific class! After using WordPress for the past 6 months and a little of Joomla, I wanted to round out my skill set. Wasn’t sure about Drupal, but in the end, really glad I took the class. Instructor Frank is right there with guidance and resources when needed.
Many of us are hungry now for an intermediate class with Frank. Highly recommend!!!
Feel free to email me any further questions you may have…

Absolutely top of the line! Frank has been immediately responsive to all queries, attentive to questions with specificity, and uncommonly knowledgeable about all the topics covered in class.
You were way ahead of the curve in the class, and glad you could use Drupal in your existing websites…

Frank was a fantastic instructor. He was always happy to help students and answer questions. He shared his knowledge and made the class fun and interesting. I hope there will be an Intermediate Drupal class!
I will have an intermediate class in the future, don’t worry.

I just purchased your Drupal lessons and have to say I am very pleased so far. I have used WordPress before but every time I tried to learn Drupal I just got overwhelmed and stopped after too much frustration.
Going through the first 2 lessons and have you answer a few of my “noob” questions really put me at ease and I am slowly starting to really understand how it all works.
Thanks so much for having these really inexpensive lessons and I am sure you will be hearing from me again soon…
Glad the lessons helped and you are “getting it” now.
Yes, I agree Drupal can be intimidating at first after you get past the initial fun of adding content, but once you understand how the interface works and the general flow of things you can create some fun and engaging websites.
Sure, contact me anytime.
