  • Distance Learning Resources
    Although we won't have our normal access to software during our distance learning portion of the class, I'll post some free alternative options here for use while we are away from the classroom. Assignments will give you the opportunity to use the software or technology that you have available. I understand that your technology may be as simple as a piece of paper and a pencil to complete assignments, and that will just have to work while we are in a distance learning situation (so don't stress, just relax and be creative and have fun!). Use this as an opportunity to challenge yourself as a designer and to find real life workarounds!

    We will begin with week 12 (week 11 was our 3rd week of spring break)
