Start with the first lesson and go through the first 4 activities together as a class to get your students comfortable with the editor. They will then continue the activities at their own pace.
Share with students that they will do:
A series of skill building activities to build a project.
Pay close attention to the directions and to only do what is asked to prevent any bugs.
Activities are auto-graded and look for the green "check +" to advance to the next activity.
At the end of the lesson, they will then get a chance to be creative and apply what they have learned to a build their own project.
Explain that they will get a chance to make an eCard and all projects will be displayed on the Class Page for inspiration.
