Hi Chazay, I purchased this course about a year ago. Since then, you have updated this community site. Will you be updating the course material to reflect anything new that you have learned since revamping this community?

Hi Liz, great question. The answer is: eventually.

I'm about 2 years behind (exaggerated) on my course launch schedule and I've been trying to figure out a way to integrate the community with a one-sign-on function, rather than people needing two logins (one for the academy and one for here). It's a technical nightmare and requires much thought, individual pieces, technical rock stars and financial outlay, because it's not as easy as 1-2-3 to putting it together.

When it's done, each of the courses will have their own discussion forums with students having access to these areas.

It's a long term plan and so right now it's premature to update the course with this update because it may have to change again depending on what technical "can of worms" we may discover along the way.

I hope this satisfies your answer for now.

How are you doing with your own courses? Did you ever start your own community?
