SSAF funds LinkedIn Learning for us, so why not become an Adobe pro?

Thanks to SSAF funding, you can learn how to use Adobe Premier Pro (or anything else that interests you) for free with Charles Sturt’s student LinkedIn Learning licences.

If you are a communications student or you simply love making videos and audio clips, then being able to use Adobe Premier Pro will make your life so much easier. Sure, there are other programs available for you to use but for the best result, you’ve got to try Adobe.

Filming and recording is one thing. Editing footage into awesomeness is another, and that is where LinkedIn Learning can help as you can follow the steps of experts in the field teaching you how to use it.

So lets have a look at what I learnt recently in LinkedIn Learning.

Learning the basics

Having to look through thousands of videos to find the right course can be difficult, but just look out for the basics, such as Premiere Pro CC 2020 Essential Training. While the course may be long, it helps you build great foundational skills and you can go through it at your own pace.

The next best thing about the essential training is that it covers everything. It goes through getting to know the platform to editing, little tips and tricks along with effects and audio editing.

Here’s a run-down of what the course offers:

  • What’s new in Premiere Pro 2020
  • Importing and organising your assets
  • Editing video
  • Moving and swapping clips
  • Using the Trim tools
  • Using markers for organisation
  • Customising the keyboard and interface
  • Editing audio
  • Working with stills
  • Adding effects
  • Manipulating clip speed
  • Correcting color
  • Adding titles
  • Sharing and exporting your project

With these skills behind you, you can produce wonderful works of art for class, work, hobbies or even gifts!
