How much homework will I need to do outside of class?
There is no homework, but if you wish to work on your website outside of class, the tutor will be happy to provide feedback during the lessons. The core software is free and may be used on any modern computer platform.
What will happen if I miss a class?
The lessons build on previous topics, so it is important to attend all sessions. Course materials will be available online, so you will have the opportunity to catch up in your own time, however. If you miss four consecutive classes without notifying RACC you will automatically be withdrawn from the course.
???Are there any other costs involved???
If you wish to edit images for your site at home, you will need an image editor. The Photoshop CS6 software used at RACC is a high-end professional package, but there are many free options. Examples include the web app ???Pixlr Editor???, which is similar to earlier versions of Photoshop, and GIMP, which though having a slightly unrefined interface, is highly functional.
