I have been asked to develop a new Web Design course for the Montana Digital Academy. When I was at the Adobe Education Summer Institute, I met a couple of people that started the Adobe Generation. The Adobe Generation is a series of free online creative courses, including Animation, Games Design and Photo Imaging. It´s your chance to learn from the best digital and creative designers in the world. You'll study the latest techniques, share ideas and develop practical skills that will help you stand out out from the crowd. The courses run for 1 hour a week per course, for nine weeks. You won't have to pay a penny and you'll even get an Adobe Generation certificate at the end.
I have been working with Roxana Hadad from Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois. She is an Instructional and Project Designer. and Greg Hodgson from The Chalfonts Community College, Buckinghamshire, U.K. I would much rather develop a course for the Montana Digital Academy Consortium (three other states) with Adobe software than with free, open source software.
After (Adobe Connect) connecting with Roxana and Greg Hodgson from The Chalfonts Community College, Buckinghamshire, U.K., there appear to be several hoops that have to be dealt with before we can really move forward. I will keep working on this. I may have to develop the course for the Montana Digital Academy and then create another, maybe level 2 course for Adobe Generation that the Montana Digital Academy could use.
