1. What are my hopes/fears for this course?
Hope to learn how to create hand drawn graphics that suit my purpose. Fear that I lack skills.
2. What areas of my life do I plan to use scribing?
The drawings I will begin with will suit the project I am currently working on – the development of graphic designs for presentations to go with our webinars for the EpCoP MOOC.
3. What does success look like for me after I take this course?
Success will present itself in achieving my hope (goals) and I will be open to the new style of elearning in a genre outside of my comfort zone – who knows what I can achieve.
… the back story …
I was so inspired by Nancy White’s hand drawn illustrations for her recent presentation online that I immediately went on the mailing list for the course with AlphaChimp University.
Today I received my notification to enrol at the discounted early bird rate and I’m in. Already I like what I see, some nice simple designs, a video and some things to do to get started. This has taught me some things that could be incorporated into the EpCoP MOOC – I am thrilled.
Now all I need to do is activate the left side of my brain and get cracking on some of my visuals that I want to draw – got the cartridge paper (in a nice bright pink bound notebook) and pens and pencils gathered already and can begin with some doodling to answer some of the opening questions.
Now I have a new purpose for blogging again!
