Design is something that is very unique to each individual or organisation. Every time I create an online course it is TOTALLY DIFFERENT to every course I've ever created.
Why? Well there are a number of reasons.
So when I came across this blog by Freepik I thought to myself, ooooo let's see what's going to be different for 2020. What can I lean to help my customers?

Your staff do not come to your workplace for these same reasons. Sorry, but it’s true.
