Help Keep Our Site Up!
Due to the very nature of our jobs, industry and the internet itself… links get outdated or broken all the time. If you find an out of date or broken link on this site, please inform the Instructor via email. Be sure to include what page, which link and any other information that is helpful.
Lynda: Training videos and do-it-yourself guides to learn the technical skills necessary to produce industry standard work. Fair warning: the weekly quizzes in this course will pull heavily from the information assigned to you from these videos, so be sure you watch all assigned videos.
WordPress: Students will set up a free account and website using this Content Management System (CMS), and utilize free themes to produce a portfolio, as well as write weekly research articles through the blog platform. You can of course purchase premium themes, hosting and even domains if you wish, but that is strictly optional for this course.
Certiport: McFatter does all of it’s Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) testing through this website, and students will sign up for an account to be used later. Remember, the Instructor cannot help you recover your Username or Password if forgotten, so the student will be expected to keep track of these details.
Gmetrix: This site is used for Adobe Certification test practice, to help the students get used to the testing environment. The Instructor cannot help students recover Usernames or Passwords if forgotten, so all students are expected to keep track of these details themselves.
Focus: This website is where grades and attendance are kept track of, and every student should become familiar with it’s use. Each student will be sure to log in daily to check grades and attendance.
Unsplash: You will create a profile here, and be required to submit a number of photos before the end of the section to give away to the creative community. Additionally, it is a great resource for royalty free images for your blogs!
