Time Commitment and Course Completion Requirements

The time commitment for this course is estimated to be 10-15 hours, but largely depends on previous skills level and exposure to Adobe tools.

To receive the one-time incentive, you must complete the following by 5 p.m., March 10, 2023:

  • Review unit 1,2,3 &4 (asynchronously),
  • meet the guidelines provided for the four projects assigned in Blackboard, and
  • e-mail a completed and published online portfolio* to by the designated deadline listed above.

*If your portfolio is incomplete, ignores concepts covered during the course, includes the work created in the past, or content created by others, you will not qualify for the incentive. If you have a question about the quality of the project and want to know if it meets the guidelines of the course, it is your responsibility to contact the instructor.

Incentives/Certifications upon Completion

Upon completing all four projects, students are awarded a $50 gift card and a chance to win an iPad*.
