We're still working on this page. We'll be adding more guides to this page as the Fall semester progresses, but in the meantime, browse the resources below or contact Digital Design Studio staff at TischDDS@tufts.edu with any questions.
Learning to use new software and equipment takes time and practice. The Digital Design Studio (DDS) offers select open workshops for those looking to get hands on training. The guides below can help with this process as well.
We also highly recommend signing up for Udemy and following their training videos for the software you are working in. These video tutorials are comprehensive and cover almost every tool you’ll need to start working in a new software. For instructions on how to sign-up check out this guide provided by TTS.
