About This Class

Make web design easy. Create a beautiful, professional Wix website in about 1 hour using Wix's powerful free tools.

Are you more interested in running your business, pursuing your hobbies, and exploring your passions than fussing over your website? 

This course was created especially for busy entrepreneurs, authors, artists, do-gooders, non-profit organizations, volunteers, and hobbyists who just want to focus on doing their work, NOT on the million and one steps it takes to design and run a good website.

It's for complete beginners with zero web design experience as well as those with little to no web design budget at all.

This quick and dirty course will show you how to:

  • Make stunning and professional-looking websites the quick and easy way in about 1 hour using free online tools
  • Know how to plan a web site and make images web-ready and high quality
  • Take your regular logo and put it on a transparent background in four minutes or less
  • Be up and running fast using the most essential and useful tools in Wix
  • Get a birds-eye view of the design process from concept to final product

In this course I'll show you step by step how I created a website for the non-profit organization, PK Rabbit Rescue. I start from the very beginning and show you the most essential and important features of the Wix dashboard and interface.

I'll show you how to get started making posts, pages, and managing all aspects of your Wix website so that by the end of the day today you can already add a new skill to your CV or resume and be easily running your own website ASAP.

I'm a practicing award-winning multimedia artist and a former tenured Associate Professor of Digital Media and Program Director of Film & Digital Media at The American University of Rome (2006-2016). I'm currently an Associate Professor of Digital Media at American University of Myanmar in Yangon, Myanmar (Burma). 

Since 2000 I've been teaching students all over the world using my tried and true custom approach (turning complex information into something simple, memorable, easy-to-understand in as short amount of time as possible) to ensure that you get the most important, relevant, and useful information that can be applied immediately.

New bonus lectures and resources will continue to be added and timely design advice will be provided in the discussion forum. I love to help and always respond to inquiries and discussions ASAP.
