Here's what some of my current students have to say about my courses:

I have pulled reviews in from Udemy.com so that you can see that they are genuine.

Judy Lunn,
Screenflow Course, Udemy review

I have taken 6 courses on Screenflow, and if I had found Karen's course, I would have only needed 1! This is the ONLY course you need to learn how to create video tutorials and to prepare yourself for a successful future sharing what you know with others. I am so impressed with this course that I'm going to suggest to Telestream, the software developer, to place this course at the very top of the learning resources on their website. Exceptional job, Karen!

Tommy Mitchell
Scrivener 3 Course, Udemy review

Even though I have been a long time Scrivener user, this course introduced me to many new (to me at least…) functions of the software. I will be able to use Scrivener much more effectively after going through this material.

The lessons were presented clearly. The topics covered were practical and dealt with thoroughly. I was especially impressed by the coverage of the Compile functions of Scrivener (which can be quite intimidating).

Gary Horton
Book Cover Course, Udemy review

This course gave me the confidence to create my own book covers, saving me gobs of money and also giving more control over the process of publishing my novels. Every author who wants to streamline and expedite the publication of their books will benefit greatly from this course. Highly recommended!

Troy Stuart
Scrivener 2 Course, Udemy review

The course gives a comprehensive overview of all the elements in Scrivener. I strongly recommend that a person watch all the videos - even the sections that you think you have already mastered or think are not relevant right now. There are so many nuggets packed in each video that it is useful to watch them all.
