About This Class

This course is for visual, creative people who need to start making HTML5 banner ads. I made this course for people that are struggling to get their heads around the new world of HTML5 advertising. This course is step by step with exercise files. I’ve saved a copy of each Adobe Animate file after every video so if you get lost you can compare your files to my completed files. At the end you’ll be able to create, test and upload standard banner ads.

This course is perfect for people completely new to the digital advertising world. We’ll cover all the basics. It’s also great for people who previously worked in Adobe Flash to produce SWF advertising.

Because this is such a new industry I’ll be around to help you with any questions. Use the forums on the pages and I’ll respond.

What are the requirements?

  • You'll need a copy of Adobe CC 2015 or above. A free 30 day trial can be download from Adobe here.

  • No previous Adobe Animate or digital advertising knowledge is necessary.

  • If you're not sure if this course is right for you. Email me what you’re trying to do and check if you’re on the right track.


What am I going to get from this course?

    • 53 lectures 3 hours of content!

    • Forum support from me. 

    • How to build banner advertising

How to keep file sizes down.

  • Firm understanding of the publishing process for ad networks like Google Doubleclick, Adwords, Simek etc. 

  • Professional workflows and shortcuts. 

  • A wealth of other resources and websites to help your new career path.


What is the target audience?

  • YES: This course is for beginners. For people who prefer not to work in code. Visual people. Creative people. Graphic designers. Marketers. Past users of Flash.

  • NO: This course is not for developers. This course will cover standard animated banners. Not dynamic banners like expanding banners, video banners or game banners.

Although a lot of this content is stuff that an experienced designer might already know, watching through these video's have shown me quite a lot of tips and tricks that get me around some of the struggles of creating animations. It has been really useful. Furthermore, Dan is a really good instructor. He moves at a good pace and doesn't dwell over any of the steps. He gets to the point while still maintaining his great personality.

This moves along at a good pace, and really helps if you are self-taught like I am.

Banner ads have always been a confusing topic to me, there seem to be a hundred different rules that I can never remember. Dan does a great job of starting from the very beginning, sharing just a bit more than you need to know so you feel confident that you've learned enough on the topic. This is the best primer I have found to get you up and running on Animate CC. As a newcomer to Flash/Animate I found the application's workflow really clunky but Dan does a great job making sense of it all. Awesome work!





Daniel Scott

UX Designer for BYOL international

I'm a UX Designer & teacher for BYOL international. Sharing is who I am, and teaching is where I am at my best, because I've been on both sides of that equation, and getting to deliver useful training is my meaningful way to be a part of the creative community.

I've spent a long time watching others learn, and teach, to refine how I work with you to be efficient, useful and, most importantly, memorable. I want you to carry what I've shown you into a bright future.

I have a wife (a lovely Irish girl) and kids. I have lived and worked in many places (as Kiwis tend to do) – but most of my 14+ years of creating and teaching has had one overriding theme: bringing others along for the ride as we all try to change the world with our stories, our labours of love and our art.

I'm a certified Adobe instructor (ACI) in Ireland. I'm also an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) and have completed the Adobe Certified Associate training (ACA). And I don't just do Adobe. Remember, media is a very broad term – digital blew out the borders, so we are all constantly learning.

I've been teaching for 14+ years. I come from being a media designer and content creator – so I understand exactly where you're at now. I've been there. I love this stuff. Print, digital publishing, web and video. I can see how it all connects. And I can see how we can share those connections.

I built Bring Your Own Laptop in Ireland, New Zealand, Australia & online. I have a great team working with me to keep BYOL at the top of Adobe and digital media training. I understand business, I have one – so I know how important it is to get it right and make it work for you.

Now my focus is on Udemy. It's my mission to bring you the best training for digital media on Udemy.
