I move quickly through the content, since many students enjoy a quick learning pace. Prefer a more laid-back pace? Many students find that re-watching lectures or pausing the lectures during key learning points is a helpful way to digest the information.
What to Expect:
This course provides everything from project prompt assignments, to an inside look at what hiring managers look for in your resume and portfolio.
You will have the chance to design things like:
social media graphics
and so much more!
I designed this course so that everyone could move through the content at their own pace. Feel free to skip around to what interests you most, or go through the course as it is laid out - the choice is yours!
