Digital Vidya: What interested you in learning Digital Marketing?
Soraya: Present decline of print readership and forecasted future decline in TV viewership. Today and tomorrow people will live the digital life.
Digital Vidya: Which course did you participate at Digital Vidya?
Soraya: I participated in the Certified Digital Marketing Master (CDMM) Course.
Digital Vidya: Why did you choose Digital Vidya’s course?
Soraya: a.) It matched my budget.
b.) Attending the complimentary Friday lecture convinced me your trainers were knowledgeable and there would be no hardware software issue while live streaming lectures online.
c.) Relevant contemporary course curriculum.
Digital Vidya: Please share top 3-5 takeaways from the course you participated at Digital Vidya.
Soraya: Mastery of key Tools/Platforms. Understanding Digital Marketing Ecosystem and its Verticals. Knowledge to start my own independent consultancy.
Digital Vidya: Please share your experience in learning through an instructor-led, online format.
Soraya: It was a blessing. My trainers were so positive and encouraging. I felt very confident.
It was my first time with an online lecture and I had no issues except 2 issues: sometimes there was a sound lag which was disruptive. Also every time I revise lectures I have to go to YouTube and play the video; I cannot download it to save monthly bytes of my MTNL data plan.
I think instructors should pre-record themselves using the tools because sometimes there are glitches.
Great lifetime chance at no extra cost to go the Digital Vidya YouTube channel and revise my lectures. Thanks.
Digital Vidya: What do you like most about Digital Vidya’s training programme?
Soraya: Practical and sensible choice of latest relevant study topics and marketing tools, platforms. Knowledgeable and pleasant trainers. Practical digital online lecture format. No silly exams. Invitations to attend weekly lectures by industry experts.
Digital Vidya: How do you think Digital Vidya’s training programme contributed to your career growth?
Digital Vidya has given me a whole new career. It has given me feet to stand on. It was by far the best decision I have made in 15 years of working. I so look forward to doing the Moblie Marketing course when I have the time and resources to.
Digital Vidya: Do you suggest any changes to Digital Vidya so that the value of its courses can be enhanced further?
Soraya: None that I can think of immediately. I am happy. The Social Media course can include Syndication of videos.
