Feedback:

"Thank you for an interesting 45 minutes. I had looked around our World Book Student version a little, but fully intend to dig deeper after your presentation. It was an investment, both in time and education. Well done!"

"Thank you Catherine. This was another enjoyable and informative session. It was interesting to discover that correlations will be there with Australian curriculum content. That will be a big sell to the teachers! I also appreciate you taking us through all the research tools and timeline capabilities. You covered heaps in a short amount of time."

"Thank you to you and your team for such a valuable and informative training session. I've had the subscription in 3 schools where I have been teaching and have never had the time to watch a training overview but have used World Book Online in many ways. Now many more ways to be explored and shared. I was thinking of doing a revision of World Book Online for the teachers but will probably prefer to just use your recorded version. I couldn't do it justice like you expertly did... Off to play with some aspects - esp the Google Drive saving option - wow!"
