Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It's a great course to start learning animation through Adobe programs. Creativity is highly encouraged within the simple assignments. Everyday, a few animated shorts are shown to students to inspire them on their assignments. The assignments given are helpful because they can be done over and over again outside of class to improve animation skills, yet they are still simple. Overall, it is a good intro class that sets students up for more animation classes.
The best parts was when you were able to be creative with what you were animating, even if it was just a bouncing ball. It was really cool to see what other people did with the assignments as well. In the class, you learn how to animate a bouncing ball with sound, create a walk cycle of your own character, panning background, rotoscope, and puppet pin.

Advice for students:
Don't be afraid to ask your professor for help or to ask questions. Getting used to the programs is a little difficult, so it's okay to admit that you need help. Professors like when you ask questions to make sure you understand the material, and this class no exception to that. If anything, your professor may like you as a student a lot more because you are showing that you want to understand what you learned.
