Approximately 1 week prior to the class, an ADAGO representative will contact ou to discuss the overall look and design aspects of the website. More complicated items will be completed by ADAGO in advance, so that your time is best used customizing your website during the class. We also ask that you provide the images, photos and text you will use for the website in advance, so that we have a chance to become familiar with it. It will also give us a better feel for how the site should be built and look.
In order to maximize your time during the class and our instructor time, some basic computer skills are required. If you are able to accomplish the following, you should have no problem with performing the tasks during the class.
