Please join us on Tuesday February 25th, 2014 at Noon PST/3pm EST for another informative Depiction 101 webinar. Please note the new day of the week and time. With all of the new Red Cross users, we thought this would be a good time to go over some of the Depiction basics again. This will be a great webinar for those new to Depiction and will go over some key concepts and tips on how to best use Depiction and its many features.
Purchasers of Depiction 1.4.3 after 1-1-14 will receive a 75% discount on Version 2 upgrade. Some folks may think that they want to hold off purchasing 1.4.3 because version of the impending release of Version 2.0. By offering this incentive we hope folks will go ahead and purchase version 1.4.3 and start using the program. Version 2.0 will operate in basically the same manner but will have increased capabilities and so whatever you learn with 1.4.3 will carry over to version 2.0.
For the last several years our Depiction University course has been facilitated by an instructor. They would review assignments and give feedback. Last year we lost our last instructor and have decided that the course is really not cost effective to facilitate at $199. However, there still is a need for a structured learning experience and so we have decided to remove the instructor but maintain the course materials without the instructor feedback. By doing this we are able to reduce the cost of the course dramatically to $19.95 and bring it into the reach of everyone’s budget. We are announcing this change before we have completely revamped the course materials. So if you purchase DU will may still find references to upload assignments and files and these should be disregarded. We do encourage course participants to use our Get Satisfaction support page to connect to other DU students and to get feedback. If you have purchased DU in the past and would like access to the materials again, send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
