Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Designing a Presentation.
If you have access to the exercise files for this course, you may want to copy them to your desktop as I've done here so that they're easily accessible to you at all times throughout the course. Inside of this folder, you'll find an Assets folder. Inside of the Assets folder are various things like images, color samples, and things like that, that I'm going to be using throughout the course. While you don't have to use these for your personal presentations, and I would actually recommend you not using those for yours, you can if you need to just to get yourself started. My recommendation though is that you use your own files so that you can create your own unique presentation throughout this course.
If you don't have access to the exercise files, that's no big deal. As I've just said, you can still follow along using your own files, or simply sit back and watch as I walk you through each individual exercise.
