​The syllabus makes reference to video tutorial links in the schoology folder? Can I gain access to that? I do not have an account with them.

This is great. I teach video production at the HS level and we want to expand our course offerings to animation/effects work. There are a lot of great resources for After Effects available, but I haven't been able to find any general scope and sequence to get us started in terms of what to include, what to leave out in such a vast and complex subject area.​
