Hey! Hope you are well. For this week’s Scan N Cut focused blog post I would like to share with you an update and some answers to commonly asked questions about the online learning course that I created back in August of 2018.
The Story So Far…
If you haven’t heard of this course, it is called ‘Cut, Draw and Scan with Confidence’ and is hosted over on Udemy.
It is a series of video lectures about the Brother Scan N Cut that starts at the very beginning – right after you’ve unloaded the box – and takes you through all of the basic need-to-know stuff about the three key features of the machine, cutting, drawing, scanning and then progresses onto using accessories and fabric – and it’s continuing to grow too!
It started out with 5 hours of content and now has an additional 2.5 hours!There is more to come too…
Having quickly established itself as a best seller I am very proud to say that it has continued to be a best seller and in fact, has been so for the last nine months since it’s launch – that is, of course, thanks to you guys n gals that have signed up.
The love has gone both ways, I am glad to say. Check out some of these awesome reviews!
Anyhoo, this month saw the 2,000 enrollments mark being hit with the total now standing at over 2,100 from 23+ countries around the world – how incredible is that!
In the near future, I will be tackling using PES files, using ‘unusual’ materials such as felt, vinyl and greyboard.
As well as all of that I plan to do some content that will give a nod to third-party software like Inkscape, Make The Cut, Sure Cuts A Lot, Affinity Designer and Adobe Illustrator.
Since launching this course I many developments have happened in the world of Scan N Cut and also more people have heard about it. As a result, some frequently asked questions have cropped up so I thought that I would answer a few quick ones here.
Q. Does this course cover the DX models?
A. Whilst some of the course will be relevant, all of the demonstrations were completed on the CM models. Because the DX model has some software and hardware differences this course may not be appropriate for DX model owners.
Sorry, however, the DX model was released after I had filmed and edited this course.
Q. Can I download the course?
A. If you are watching on a PC/Laptop you will need to be connected to the internet at the time of watching as the content is streamed to your device.
If you are watching via certain tablets or smartphones that have the Udemy app installed, it is possible to download parts of the course to watch offline.
No cheeky watching at your workplace unless your boss approves. Don’t go getting us both in trouble.
Q. Do I have to pay more if/when you update the course?
A. No, the price you pay at the time of signing up is a one-time lifetime access price. If I add content to this course, you will automatically see it the next time you sign in.
So, you can close that purse up and save your pennies.
Q. Are you planning any other courses?
A. I do hope to create some project-based videos but these will take some time to create so won’t be ready for a few months to come yet.
Keep an eye on the announcements page of the course website and also this blog, I’ll squeal when it’s ready.
Q. Where do I access the course?
A. You can sign up or access the course at any time via the Udemy website.
Other related stuff…
It’s not just that course though. There are other opportunities to plunder my bonce.
If you would like to see more from me in relation to the Brother Scan N Cut CM series of machines, please check out the following links:
– Blog Archive. A whole load of blog posts from the last 5 years working with this machine.
– Udemy Video Workshop – a full Scan N Cut series of ad free lectures that takes you right from getting it out of the box, through the key features of the machine and beyond.
– YouTube Playlist. A whole bunch of free videos.
– Digital Craft Emporium – my cutting file store.
If you don’t yet have a Scan N Cut and would like to get one, remember, the machine is exclusively sold by Create and Craft TV, in the UK. It may be available from other retailers overseas, of course.
One thing that I will ask you – please don’t treat me like the google. If you need a certain obscure cutting file, pop those words along with SVG into the google search engine website and see what comes up please, ok?
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to sharing more with you soon!
Bye for now.
