Illustrator-for-fashion-design-flat-sketch-line-sheet TIPS:
  • Give the video a little while to load.
  • Try not to have multiple chapters (web pages/ tabs) open. Having multiple pages with videos open at the same time will slow down your video load time.
Navigation example
  • The course pages have an easy navigation that will help to find the course homepage, previous and next chapter pages.
  • Note that you can mark each unit as completed as you successfully finish the episodes.
