  • 1.  How to teach Xpression

    Posted 10-06-2023 15:57


    So I've been asked to teach some college students the basics and functionality of Xpression. I'm looking for suggestions on a particular order of things to go over with people no experience on the machine.

    I've learned knowing things and how to pass the knowledge on, can be tricky.

    Any help on this would be appreciated

    if you look at the XPression U and look at the 100 videos so 101 and so on that will probably give you some good ideas of where to start. If they get more advanced than that look in the topics for the 200 range.
