Matric Students Feedback from our Matric Workshops
Student #2On the 6th of October 2018, I attended the Matric Workshop for Life Sciences at Greenside Design Centre. I felt that this workshop was highly beneficial to me not only in preparation for my matric year but also for my final exams. It helped me better understand the way in which to study which will increase my marks. The advice and notes we were given do not only have a major impact on the way you approach life science exams but also the other subjects which you take.
Student #3The matric workshop that I came for was for Life sciences and to me it was really a new experience as we were taught in ways that we could all understand and we were also taught the best way for each of us to study which not only helped us with life sciences but all subjects, the teacher who taught us was really amazing and the notes she made for us was well summarized with a lot of info about our final exam so for all those who need extra help I really recommend doing the matric workshop at GDC
Student #4I attended the matric workshop today for Design. It really helped me in terms of understanding design theory and the amount of work required for my matric year. It gave me loads of insight to where marks are allocated in which parts of the design exams
It was nothing like just a normal class lesson but rather another experience for understanding design deeper and grasping more about the subject as a whole. It was an experience of a lifetime, and I definitely recommend attending the matric design workshops for revision as well as a better understanding and some motivation for matric! And it was loads of fun😉
Student #5Today helped me understand very well how to apply information to certain aspects of a design question, especially essay questions.

The Principles of Good Multimedia Design
It is often overlooked just how important design is when it comes to multimedia as not all multimedia is effective. Design plays a massive role in the user experience from navigation to seamless use across the multimedia activation.

If the experience is seamless and fun that will keep them coming back for more.Similar to the software development life cycl ...
