simply brilliant teaching method - easy to understand, entertaining
& interesting. Have been a Corel user since v3, and never before
have I established [& learnt] so many alternative methods & features.
For example, the blur [zoom] feature & the painting out of part
of the original image featured in PhotoPaint vol 3 has already produced
an advert for a client using this feature. Keep up the good work
Scott - I am always awaiting your next CD.
Steve Russell Stour Design UK
I'm sure other folks have told you this but you are an excellent
teacher. I like the fact that the series isn't "Hollywood"
slick. The lessons are fun and you demonstrate many little tricks
that only an experienced Corel user would understand. Also, you
haven't forgotten what it's like to be a beginner Corel user and
that very valuable for me. The CD approach is very user friendly
and the ability to stop and restart the lessons is so useful, especially
since I've been using a computer for only about18 months.
Sandy Weldon Los Gatos, CA
want to thank all the people at Clicknlearn for such a quality learning
system. As a sign artist, I thought I was good, but your Clicknlearn
Cd's have shown me how to scratch past the surface of "ordinary"
and soar in to an expanded dimension of creativity in art. Thank
this is the most fantastic tuition I've ever encountered with any
computer related subject, and I've written some very large programs
in my time. After I watched the envelopes version twice, and subscribed,
my wife and three kids also watched it and understood more than
they ever have before. Well done Scott, you're a champion son.
Jeff White Im-Press Promotions Australia
Scott I'm addicted to your CD's. I've played so many I'm starting
to speak Australian. Your instruction is brilliant. Man, I am so
glad I bought that first one. Ever since I've been using Corel more
than Adobe. I wasn't even going to upgrade from 8 to 9, but now
I am. I'm eagerly awaiting Extrusions 2.
Matthew Wheeler USA
I must say these are the most intuitive and inspirational teaching
tools around. I am not sure what is better, a teacher standing next
to you, or one of these CD's showing you everything you need to
know. I have just recently purchased the Project Series Vol 1. I
learned more in the first 2 min. than I have in the last two months.
Nothing compares to the value you get by purchasing these CDs. They
are relatively inexpensive yet very essential. I will be purchasing
future Volumes, as I am sure they will only get better and better.
My recommendation: Buy as many as you can......especially the New
Project Series. It puts a "real" life aspect on designing.
Jason Lancaster, Texas USA
bought the 3 volume set Photo Paint series. Just completed the first
volume and I'm hooked. I am a Technical Instructor and I feel the
teaching techniques of these CD's are excellent. Great job! I plan
on purchasing the 12 CD Draw set real soon.
Art Mclaren NMC - Prairie Island
have the CorelDRAW 12 CD series, and have been working my way through
them. Just want you to know how fantastic they are. I have also
struggled through the boring tutorials provided with Quark and Photoshop,
and have a terrible time not only getting through them and retaining
anything I've learned, but it's so difficult to even stay interested
because the Click N Learn format has spoiled me. Thanks so much
for an excellent product.
Kate Ryan Kate Ryan Design
the kind of person who has to see to believe. The Click N Learn
CDs have changed my way of looking at CorelDRAW. I'm for the most
part self taught in Corel for about 5 years. I don't like reading
the tech manuals, they're much too dry. Your CD's have personality.
It's like have a private tutor anytime I need one. I can ask you
the same questions over and over and never feel guilty because I
might be bothering someone. Thanks Scott .... and please don't ever
give this up. I have every Click N Learn that's been ingeniously
and painstakingly created by you and your constituents. I appreciate
your past and continuing efforts. Thanks so much.
Paul Peterson, AKA "cybernut", Sacramento,
can't tell you how much I enjoy your Corel Draw program. You make
learning so very easy. I know at my age, I have slowed down, and
I am able to repeat the lessons over and over again until I remember
them. And best yet, there is no one around to tell me how slow I
am. Just wanted to let you know. Don't know what I will ever do
with Corel Draw once I learn how to use it; but I enjoy the learning
I would be more than lost without your wonderful CD's. I bought
three books, and one confused me more than the other. Even "CorelDRAW
9 for Dummies" is boring and difficult to stick with. Your
CD's make learning a snap. Just like being in a classroom with a
have viewed the first 6 CD's on contours, blends and extrusions,
and would like to say that I am totally impressed both with the
material covered and the way that it is presented. I have read many
Corel books and have been subscribing to a magazine for the past
4 years, but have learned a great deal more in the past several
days from your CD's. There are so many tools and features in Corel
that the hobbyist like myself would never have discovered had it
not been for your teaching approach.
Corel has taken on a new meaning for me.
Bill Burgess, Canada
Scott, one could never believe how much fun I have had with your
Contours volume 1 C. D. I Have done every exercise there many times.
Am on only 32 RAM....Your Click and Learn C. CD's are easily the
very best Corel Draw learning tool to come along yet. And I have
tried them all. Not only do I learn the specific subject of your
C. D. but always pick up some valuable techniques about other things
At last a reasonably priced course with a clear and invigorating
dialogue. I don't know why but over the years of studying and passing
numerous exams,some fairly technical, I have always found that I
do better with piccies and being shown, something to do with the
hemispheres of the brain I'm told, which luckily also helps me to
be artistic. I have been bedazzled with CorelDRAW ever since version
duh! was it one? I have a couple of books on it and Photopaint,
but this is definitely the way to go. All the best and all my support,
I'll grab the lot. Regards,
Raymond. Blackwood Studios Australia
Vol-8 arrived yesterday, and I'm very pleased! It continues the
high quality and creative potential shown in the other cd's. My
work has improved geometrically since I started your learning program
As an subscriber, I'm looking forward to future editions.
"You're Simply The Best!" - excuse me for pinching someone else's
line but I couldn't put it any better. I have just purchased my
second Click N Learn CD and am amazed at just what I have learnt
in so short a time. I can't wait to buy some more. I have been using
CorelDRAW from version 3 and have been searching since then for
just the right kind of training package. Now I have found it I am
never letting go! Thank you so much.
Sue Newby England
can I say, I've used CorelDRAW since version 3 and after years of
frustration and sometimes hard graft at trying to understand some
of the more complex tools with both Draw and Paint, you have managed
to penetrate my grey matter within weeks since using the CorelDRAW
series of CD/ROM tuition.
Thanks very much for a much appreciated way of learning CorelDRAW
Sir/Madam. I must congratulate you for the excellent work you do
with this series of click n learn. I did not know half of the things
you can do with Corel draw. My subscription is still good for another
6 issues. I can't wait to receive the next CD,Vol.7. Keep up the

did I realize "WHAT A FIND" I had made in the local newsagent
when I purchased one of these Clicknlearn CorelDRAW CDs. This has
just got to be the Best method of graphics training I have come
across. I heartily congratulate all involved and highly recommend
to everyone that this is the way to learn and explore CorelDRAW.
Waiting with anticipation for more, more, more.....

hours of purchasing CorelDRAW Blends Vol 2.a by Click n learn, from
my local newsagent, I had learnt more than I had from months of
studying the Corel manuals and running the program tutorials! I'm
hooked and can't wait for the rest of my subscription!"

and great entertainment - a wonderful formula. Keep up the good
Peter Dervan University College Dublin Ireland
have literally spent thousands of dollars on hardware, software,
and books (lots of books) to try and teach myself the fundamentals
of exceptional graphic design. I had bought CorelDRAW 8 when it
first came out. I bought some books and spent a number of hours
trying to wade through the program. The books were poorly written
and terribly proofread. I gave up in frustration and moved on to
the "A" competition even though their books were just
as bad. When CorelDRAW 9 came out, I upgraded and hoped I would
not have to spend too much time learning the program. Once again,
the latest and greatest how to books fell far short of their promises.
So, I put CorelDRAW back on the shelf again to gather more dust.
When I got the notice that version 10 was coming out, I through
it in the garbage as I heard about the financial problems Corel
was going through. I stumbled across your site by accident during
a search on the web. Intrigued, I downloaded your demo copies. I
liked what I saw and decided to give it a try. After ordering your
Photopaint series, I have now ordered your complete Draw series
as well. You are hands down, the best computer graphics trainer
I have ever run across. I am extremely grateful and am finally learning
what I should have learned a long time ago. Keep up the great work! You should be getting paid by Corel for your promotion of
its products. I would not have upgraded to CorelDRAW
10 if it wasn't for your training series.
CAPT Randell Smith
LOVE your CDs! I have every single one and I am always sad when
I get to the end of a newly released CD because I know that will
be it for a while until the next one gets published.
I will always be a faithful follower. I do think your CDs are the
best thing out there as far as training goes, for any software product.
Thank you for all the time and effort that goes in to each one! Leslie Davidson
CDs are absolutely brilliant. I commute to work each day on the
train (1 hour each way) and what better way to pass the time than
updating my skills (which are pretty basic) with CorelDRAW. Am looking
forward to completing the series of 12 CDs just purchased, at which
time I will most definitely be subscribing for future Lessons.
Cliff Hobson Technical Horizons Pty Ltd
Concept I just purchased and received Extrusions Vol 3a. I wanted
to order one CD just to see what all the excitement was about and
after I watched the CD the first time I found out. This is a state-of-the-art
training concept. Being a Corel trainer myself I know how hard it
is to cover a vast amount of material with your students and have
them retain enough of that information to become a more proficient
user of CorelDRAW. The concept of being able to watch an exercise,
pause it, try a segment yourself and then return to the CD for more
instruction is excellent. I plan to purchase as many of the CD's
as possible to expand my skills with CorelDRAW which in the long
run will make me a better CorelDRAW trainer. Thanks Click-N-Learn
Jim Cormier Square One Graphics USA CA
used CorelDRAW in business for over 3 years, your tutorial CD's
are like a gift from heaven. We are one of the few sign companies
to actually do graphic art, logos, and business cards. Its always
been a case of learn as you go, and because of this, it has tended
to give us a "certain style", which is OK, but we are
always in need of fresh ideas. Having your CD's is like having a
teacher right in the room, and one that doesn't mind being interrupted,
stopped and asked to repeat things over until its understood. Only
one question "where would you like the apple sent"? Anyone
with CorelDRAW, who doesn't get your CD's is missing out big time.
John Lyus - Managing Director, Appealing Signs & Graphics, Perth Western Australia
love your CDs! They have given us some great ideas and have taught
us some new techniques that we put into use immediately. Looking
forward to future issues. On that note, we were wondering if you
have or plan to put out CDs on color management, printing color
Trent Andres Image Press Canada
purchased your recent CD (Blends 2.a), They are turning out quite
helpful and I will send a subscription in sometime after Christmas
when my bank account revives. My boss has had no in house graphics
package, so I finally convinced him to get Corel Draw, to see you
using a latter version of Draw not only does it help with tips &
tricks, but to see the functionality and new features as compared
with my older version gives me a first look at Draw before my boss
sticks the graphics system in my face and says "Right!! off
you go" I'm a learn as you go guy, with no formal training,
started with Draw 3.
Merv Archer Australia
CD's are a real boon to my business - they give a more in-depth
approach. With most graphics software sporting so many features
now, manuals and guides rarely give you a true sense of what these
features are really capable of. The detail with which Contours and
Blends have been dealt with is refreshing and helps me make my time
more productive. Good stuff!!
Oliver Rozsnay, Victoria, Australia, Company: A CLOSER LOOK
Just dropping a note to let you know I am very happy with your lessons.
Keep up the good work. I've done plenty of reading over the years,
but your lessons have really been an eye opener. Thanks for your
have enjoyed all of your lessons very much and congratulate you
on a great product. One of the most appealing things for me, a rank
amateur, is watching somebody who is so knowledgeable and who still
makes occasional mistakes. I don't feel quite so Corel-illiterate
as I had and always look forward to the next exciting episode. (Sounds
like a serial, doesn't it?!)
Margaret Colquhoun Australia
Where do I begin? Okay at the top, I don't think I can add anymore
to the other testimonials I have just read. All of them are exactly
right with what they wrote. I just started back at Graphic Design,
had to stop and raise my son, it took priority, but now he is on
his way and I AM BACK. I don't think I would have known where to
start if it hadn't been for your CD's instruction and aid. I bought
them all and am awaiting your CD on Shaping and Weld. I watch them
and study them everyday. I thank you and your staff for being so
diligent in compiling the best information needed for the CorelDRAW.
Sharen Custer, NY USA
I received the first 6 CD's about a week or so ago and I am really
pleased with them. You have a special gift for teaching and give
us inspiration to try new things. You have saved me much time and
frustration in frumbling my way through as I know so many others
have had to do in the past.
Margaret & Steve Shaffer
gone though the first CD and I must say I really really like the
way you teach. I own a few CorelDRAW tutorial VCR tapes/CDs and
they're very boring to watch. The reasons I like your method is
....the way you explain/talk is so friendly it keeps me wanting
to learn, plus you give many little extra tips about other areas
of Draw and you have a regular guy type of feeling (Not.. some Mr.
Know it all) to your lessons. I'll explain... You make deliberate
little mistakes just like we all do and this gives a feeling that
it is OK (we're not all perfect) plus I like that you didn't stop
the movie and you explained that it may take some time for the computer
to draw the techniques that is a very REAL part of learning and
using CorelDRAW. I have watched the first CD about four times and
I keep picking up more each time. I've also re-created a few of
your demos on my own, ...I will be starting the next set of lessons
in the next few days and I look forward to learning with you and
your wonderful, very real and friendly teaching methods. Talk to
Mike Basil. Michael's Electric USA
Your series is awesome! I am a beginner to IT graphics and have
chosen Corel Draw (starting with version 9). Your way of teaching
beats grinding through the books by miles. Thankyou for producing
John Weekes, BANORA POINT NSW
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! You have helped me more than any book has
and I usually learn quite easily from books. Corel however, is more
complicated than some of my programming. I appreciate so much how
everything is so clearly explained with an example on the screen.
The instruction is clear, concise and excellent. I am not new to
Corel as I started with version 4. Thanks to you I now know more
then I ever did.
Barb Henry, Oregon USA
thanks. It was great. You are not only a graphic arts genius but
a brilliant teacher. Love the CDs! Look forward to them each month.
But is there a way I can get images of what's on each one. I'm loosing
track of them
I just want to let you know that I love your CDs. I have all of
them to date, and they are great!!! They've taught me allot on how
to use CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT . Thanks again.

I´m sure you get
a lot of positive comments about your products. Well this is another

Scott, I can't begin to tell you how much your Click & Learn
CD Vol. 1 Contours Has helped me to understand the power and usefulness
of that effects tool. I have been Using CorelDRAW since version
4. I am not a graphics designer by any means. I just use It for
my own personal enjoyment. I have spent tons of money on books,
magazines, and Videotapes in an attempt to better understand the
capabilities of CorelDRAW. If I had to Pick out the single most
important feature in your tutorial it would have to be the in-depth
Explanation as to "why" we are asked to click on this
or change that setting. You don't take For granted that I already
know. Lets face it, if I knew "why" then I wouldn't need

novel concept combined with a good teacher. To sit in the comfort
of your home and gain knowledge that would have otherwise cost hundreds
of dollars, is in my opinion a divine gift. I must say that the
teaching technique of Scott Georgeson has no room for improvement.
Just as advertised, the feeling is of a teacher sitting right next
to you. And you can make him repeat the lesson as many times as
you like, without fear of extra homework or detention. My best compliments
to Scott and Clicknlearn.
Behram Cooper Australia
have your first 3 CD'S . I'm not that great with graphics ( the
kids are much better , so what else is new? )...I am absolutely
stunned by the quality of the product and the naturalness of the
speaker , it is as if he/you were talking directly to me. I love
the easy manner. I shall be placing a subscription with you shortly....Err
that is, if the children will give me a pay rise!!!...laughs...
Eddy Davis Australia
just received the CD-ROM's (Blends 2 a, b and c, and Extrusion 3a),
and have been viewing them. I've learned quite a bit just by viewing.
Your teaching and explanation is very good and helpful. In fact,
I've learned how to better utilize other tools in Corel Draw. I
must say that the effects you bring forth are truly amazing. I just
came back from a two day seminar and just because I viewed your
CD-ROM's I was able to give some information about (rotating on
a path). (It made me sound like I was quite knowledgeable).
Madge Haynes USA
browsing in a news agent, I came across your click n learn CD. The
CD was a huge surprise and I promptly subscribed. I have the full
set, and look forward to each new one. As a Newbie to graphics and
having made no headway via books etc, I'm now making excellent progress.
The main change in my approach is that I now find myself looking
at commercial graphics and figuring out how I could do them. Well
done, and keep up the good work. Thanks
I'm really enjoying using your CD's on Blends. Did ~20 variations
on a logo for a friend (I'm trying to sell him on Corel & your
CD's). It's like turning on the light....it gets your feet wet &
then you dive in! It was the catalyst I needed. I have several great
books on Corel, but all the reading didn't produce anything....just
frustration. When I tried to do something out of a book, it didn't
work out....a step was missing, or I'm just blind. I don't know
how I found out about your product, but I'm sure a lot of Corel
users here would love them if they only knew. I'll let everyone
know about them, including some local colleges that have graphics
courses using Corel. I would very much like to see you succeed,
and will continue to purchase them as they become available. All
Cal McGaugh Ca USA
a capturing 40-minute lesson I learned more about Corel Draw than
I have in a year. I tend to do the same things all the time, using
my tools of comfort. The lesson opened my eyes to tips and techniques
I didn't even know existed. Corel Draw can be quite complicated,
but the lessons explain concepts, which makes it easy! I recommend
the series to everyone. Pam Sybrandy Ca
I have just purchased a copy of Corel Vol 2a, ' fantastic'.
Patrick Hay New South Wales
on my way to be a graphic designer, I ordered all the cds and they
really tought me more than school. I would like to see more, and
more on other aspects that Corel Draw such as Photo Paint. Also
you guys are so good you could teach other parts like, printing
and how to do this for a living like I am. All though I'm in school
I still would by the CD's, thanks.
I've just been through your 'CorelDRAW Insight' CD, and it's excellent...well
done. It is much like having my own tutor at home. The CD is a great
have now bought the second CD i.e. Blends and continue to be impressed
with the simplicity and style of delivering information on what
could otherwise be a fairly complex set of procedures. I have also
developed a better understanding of the purpose and use of some
of the Corel Draw tools ie bezier and interactive transparency tools
which are used in your demonstrations. I find your method more practical
and easier to understand than the " Help" files provided
with the Corel Draw applications. I look forward to receiving these
CDs each month and will be making a periodic subscription in the
next week or so.
Ian Andrews. Australia
have just played through lesson one of your great product CorelDRAW
insight and am very impressed. Books are very informative but it
is easy to get lost. Using motion graphics and voice beats text
and pictures every time. Once again, Great product.
Peter Compton, Jandakot, Western Australia
for your initiative. I just bought your "Corel Draw Insight"
Volume 1. I learnt more in one hour with your CD than with any other
book. I am looking forward to the next Volume.
Daniel Debono Australia
your "Effects" Volume 1 Contours Insight, found it a great
way of learning.
Well Done! I have just purchased your fist volume of effects......
it's great thank you for thinking of it. I look forward to the next
volume. Do you teach anywhere?
Have just purchased your Corel Draw CD and have enjoyed it very
much and will subscribe as I think it is great value.
