Tips

Sandra Burns

From my days of training Adobe Software, my favorite part was watching a student’s face light up when they got it, the aha moment!

Sandra’s Tips

I have many methods I learned or created that work well from my experience here’s a few that come to mind:

Tip 1

Bringing my corporate training knowledge online via elearning and instructional design:

  • When creating or updating content I like to imagine, how the learner experiences it?
  • What does it look like when accessing such content?
  • What can I do to improve it? 

Tip 2

  • Do I have all the information/materials to work on a project?
    • If not, I seek out the people for what’s needed.
    • Meanwhile, I move on to the ones I do have all the information/materials to work with.

Tip 3

Whether I am building a website or elearning, I ask myself these questions: Who, What, Where, When, Why, How? I created this form to help.

Tip 4

I ask who are all the decision makers, reviewers that need to give their input besides any SME’s (Subject Matter Experts).


Hello Sandra,

Just a note to thank you for the great week of Adobe training!

Thank you for the:

  • thorough introduction to Adobe Creative Design Suite
  • one-to-one training personalized at my pace
  • extra Adobe books and lessons to practice the new skills
  • opening new horizons in creative design for me
  • new programs you taught each day:  Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and Acrobat
  • last day summary and practical lessons

Adobe Design programs can be very complex.  This introduction let me glimpse the potential of these programs while learning and practicing basic tasks.  This week long training gave me a good start in each of the four design suite programs.  Additional discussions regarding color palettes, tints, and hues and the importance of print shop communications were also very essential, practical, and applicable for anyone overseeing, managing, or specializing in marketing materials development.

Overall, this 5-day Adobe Creative Design Suite Bootcamp was a very worthwhile investment of my time and money.

Thank you, Sandra!

Take care, Tina
