Software and Hardware Requirements
Please make sure to read through the software and hardware requirements article to make sure you have everything you need before you start:
Preparing for your Q&A
The "Attend Q&A" button can be found on top of the Students tab within your course. Use that link to join your Q&A throughout the term.
Additionally, a few minutes before your first scheduled Q&A, your Mentor will send you an email with the Q&A link.
Be aware of your timezone
The Animation Mentor campus has all times set to display in your local time. Be aware of when your Q&A is scheduled to begin.
Note: The Q&A times listed on the Registration Portal are in Pacific Time. So you will need to make sure you know what that translates to in your local time.
Learn to use the Zoom tool, set up your webcam and mic, and become familiar with the tool so that you do not struggle installing or setting it up during your first Q&A.
Additional information on Zoom set up, and Q&A expectations can be found in the Q&A Guidelines.
When it comes time to submit your assignments, here are a few articles to help you:
- Grading Policies and Guidelines
- Submitting Assignments
- Submitting a Late Assignment
- Uploading a Progress Reel
