During Session 1, have the handouts open on your screen, or print them. We'll spend time practicing visual thinking. In Session 2, have the handouts and Vyond open on your computer. We'll be working within the tool and exploring ways to efficiently and creatively create concept videos. In Session 3, have those handouts and Vyond ready again.
