Vertical Artisans 2.0 Press Release
Date: March 7th 2013
From Nathan Giffin
Vertical Artisans Owner
After 5 years of service we are now launching a massive upgrade to the site. The new software system utilizes many new features for students.
Streaming Video Service is one of the major upgrades for faster viewing consistency. In addition to visual placement markers that remind students as to what they have all ready seen and course difficulty levels, the entire system is set up like classroom sessions. There are modules and lessons for each of the 4 instructors with many more instructors on the way. Students can now purchase the courses they desire and learn at their own pace. Courses now include Stonefacing, wall cladding, positive carving, living tree art, rock facades as well as the painting and staining that accompany these methods. Special new features such as a online rock gallery for reference work, online calendar with expos, hands on training, and webinar postings, Online Shop featuring various listings, and a comprehensive free video library for people who just want to look around are just a few of the nice additions to the site. Convenient links to all the social networks and other online services are also embedded for the viewer. The new site still has its forum, blog and digital magazine.
