What Students are Saying

Awesome course. Great introduction to so many varying digital tools. Doug’s a great instructor. You’ll love it.

Cynthia Shipman

Doug brings a very unique perspective while taking us through this sketchnoting course. He is a great teacher. This course is an excellent example of an agile way of teaching – the time of the course was fixed but the scope absolutely kept on evolving as we started getting deeper into digital sketchnoting. One of the best teachers to learn such wonderful knowledge. Thanks Doug.

Rajendra Deshpande

Doug has created a global classroom where participants cheer your work, give you new ideas and useful feedback. The environment encourages you to just go ahead with your journey – your direction is the right one for you, and the community salutes you on the way. It’s been really fun.

Hanne Aastrup

As a teacher who works with students who learn in many different ways, including many visual learners, digital sketchnoting is a way to help students, especially these days where remote learning is a possibility for all or some of the school year. These students who say they learn best writing or drawing with pencil and paper can transfer these skills to technology. And as a teacher I can put some difficult concepts in a format that some students will understand better than just in writing. And I can do it remotely and online if necessary. I’m glad I took this course and jumped way out of my comfort zone to learn a new way to teach and reach all students.
