So as you are all aware, I am headed to NY for ALTNYC. I am hopefully on the plane right now! Wednesday night I will be meeting atly, one of our sponsors. They are a new education website that just launched last month. They are looking for instructors; and I have ideas forever. I want my own channel…like Oprah.
This is the starter packet I received from them in the mail. Way to go atly, you are bringin’ it.
This is the breakdown of how their classes work. And if you ask me, this is the future of all education. Having my own design business, a new blog and a family, I can’t learn any other way. It’s a juggling act in a circus. But in the middle of it all if I can find little windows of time to learn new things, I can sleep at night. Here is the lowdown on how it works. READ the last one TWICE.
atly classes are always open, so your class begins when you enroll. With no class times and no due dates, atly's schedule is your schedule.
Whether you want to learn hard and meet an imminent deadline, or spread it thin over a matter of months, atly accommodates your style. Instructors prepare class materials and resources for guided study, and await your questions and submissions for more personalized consultations.
atly instructors provide feedback, responding to students' assignments, emails and discussion board posts and contributing ideas and encouragement. That means every instructor is a resource and every student has a mentor – so the learning will last.
You'll never lose access to class materials – so you can return, re-learn and refer as often as you like.
So wish me luck. I will be tweeting the updates, so follow along.
