Brand New Design Launched, New Content Available This Week



Months of work have finally led to the completion of RapidWeaver Classroom's redesign. Late last year I introduced a new responsive design and new organization of content in the membership areas, and on Friday I launched the redesign of the "public" side of RapidWeaver Classroom. I am very satisfied with the result, and relieved that the work is finally done!

I hope that this new design appeals to you and maybe even inspires you with your own projects. If you have a couple of minutes to spare, you might want to check out the "2-minute Introduction" video on the Home page. I've created a lot of videos over the past 6 years, but never anything quite like this, and it was a lot of fun! If you like it and are interested in something similar for your website, get in-touch and we can discuss that possibility.

Now that RapidWeaver Classroom is 100% responsive, an improved user experience will be consistent across all devices -- computers, tables and smart phones. I already had a fair amount of experience with responsive design before starting this project, but I learned quite a bit more from some unique challenges I faced, and I look forward to taking that experience and adding to/improving the responsive design training offered here at RapidWeaver Classroom. It's such an important topic and it's very important I provide thorough training for it.

Speaking of new training, just over a week ago I revealed that I would be recreating the entire series of Stacks 2 (now 2.5) tutorials. A significant number of those tutorials will be posted this week. I originally planned for them to be released last week, but my 3rd sickness this winter came in the form of laryngitis, and I was without a voice for 5 days. It returned to full strength yesterday, so I will complete the remaining portion of this first phase of tutorials, and have them posted mid-week. The second (final) phase of the new Stacks 2.5 tutorials will be released the following week, and then I will continue with training on a variety of great new 3rd-party stacks, responsive design training, and some content related to popular 3rd-party theme features that I think will be very useful.

If there is any specific training that you'd like to see, please let me know. There is a contact form specifically for feedback and tutorial suggestions in the members' area. I am always interested in hearing your suggestions in regards to any aspect of RapidWeaver Classroom.

Thanks for your support!
