Today I took my first online blogging-centered class through altitudesummit.com! It was How to use Illustrator to make your brand yours with Allison and I had so much fun! I had never done an online course before, so it was interesting to log on, see a class chatroom, participate in a brief poll, and then have a host briefly explain how the online class worked. For illustrator, Alison did a ‘screen share’ online stream so you could see what she was doing on Illustrator. I did my best to follow along, although I’m not very fast with Illustrator since I’m such a newb 😉 If you are interested in some of her online youtube tutorials check out her channel The Alison Show! I know that I will be spending lots of time on her channel and Illustrator this afternoon 🙂 Check back later for a post showing you some of the cool things I learned!
Bing’s Summer of Doing is providing an opportunity for bloggers to take up to 4 of Alt’s online classes for FREE! That’s right, FREE! Just follow the directions on the website altitudesummit.com for details.
Thank you BING!!!! If you read my previous blog post Must. Love. Blogging: Alt Online Classes, you know that I signed up for an Illustrator class and Advertising/finding sponsors class.
