Community MX

If you have not yet visited the CommunityMX website....what are you waiting for?

I have been a member of CommunityMX for about 2 years and have gotten an amazing wealth of information from this site. As a trainor and an interactive multimedia educator there are a huge amount of tutorials and articles that you can use with your peers or in the classroom with your students.

Why are the tutorials and articles so good on CommunityMX?

Because you have a dedicated team
of educators and industry people who really understand the software applications that they write about. They use and work with them everyday! They also know what it takes to be in front of a classroom of students!

You will find tutorials on Flash, Fireworks, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, ColdFusion, Illustrator, CSS, etc... Many of the tutorials are free but I highly encourage you to look into their membership plans. There is an educational membership that is $99 (US) per year...but well worth every penny! With this comes a great newsletter and access to all of their tutorials online.

CMX JumpStarts is one of the unique design products that they offer. "Based on Web standards, these versatile layouts employ valid CSS2 and XHTML 1.0 Transitional markup and pass WAI and 508 accessibility checkpoints. This makes it easy for you to quickly create new sites that work on a variety of browsers and platforms. You are only a few simple edits away from your own look and feel."

Each CMX JumpStarts includes a sample download of the finished site, images, explaination of how and why, demos of live pages and screenshots of how it will look in a variety of browsers.
