Here are a few testimonials from previous Digital Campus courses:

Good insight into the way forward for a personal archive.  Great to concretize abstract concepts that I’ve been practicing on an ad hoc basis .  Found it inspirational  and motivating to actually do the work necessary to maintain an archive.” (Christine Nesbitt Hills, Digital Campus 2012)

Digital Imaging Essentials course gave me a deeper understanding of key aspects of image quality recognition and repair.  Graeme is a patient, well-planned lecturer with good visual aids.” (Digital Campus 2006)

When you run another 1 day digital Masterclass for the DSLR photographers, then I’ll be first in the queue to sign up. I did your course in Pmb some 4 – 5 years back and to this day I tap into the learnings acquired there.  I spent a fortune on expensive British based DSLR magazines, mostly because all of them had accompanying discs with step by step photoshop lessons, but they never worked, because a tutorial disc does not provide any leadership and it does not interact with the learner. Conversely your AMO Masterclass was a fantastic learning experience, as the facilitator leads the learning and they also immediately answer questions topical to the class and there is just no substitute for this interactive advantage.” (Steve McCurrach, Aerial Photographer)

Participants at the Digital Campus in 2008 gave a rating out of 10 for the different courses.
