Flash Class

I’m currently taking Flash Class as part of my effort of picking up some new skills.  Fortunately, my local university extension offers a web design certification program for folks interested in continuing education.  I think I’m going to go ahead and do it.  So anyhow, I’ve had two sessions of the intro level Flash class and so far I really like Flash.  It seems like a powerful tool that I could use for presentations and to make prototype websites and interfaces.  Anyhow, here’s some stuff I did while trying to pay attention to lecture.  Little did I know we were going to do a bouncing ball the first day — about an hour into the 4-hour session I had already started playing around and made the bouncing ball.  I also made some dripping blood which wasn’t part of the class, but … well … you know how that goes.  Anyhow, Flash is great.  One you learn the basics, you can do some neat things very quickly.  Check out the fun I had :).

Next class I have to turn in a 15 – 30-sec banner ad that advertises me in some way.  I will post it here too when I’ve completed it.  I’m pretty dangerous now that I’ve had 8-hours of instruction ;p.
