    Best part was the take-away material. The in-class exercises and presentation skills of the the session leaders need improvement.

    Excellent content and format. Would like a bit more discussion of the tools. Perhaps reduce total number of topics for a 1 day program

    Poor logistics, even with a problem finding the entrance. Poorly organized -- no sense of planning for the day, very poor time management. Poorly presented -- lots of jargon, with little explanation. Did not match what was advertised: "hand-on session" -- almost none, and what there was was again badly organized and not helpful; "learn core tools" - virtually nothing more than references to tools; virtually no demonstrations or explanations. Lots of theory of group collaboration but little real tutorial meat in how things are different online.
