Welcome to Notion 101 for Creative Project Management

The name of the course refers to managing your creative endeavors, but also to managing your projects creatively using a tool that really rewards creativity. That tool is Notion.

So... what is Notion?

Notion is a robust project management tool that helps you build powerful and automated systems for all aspects of your life. It combines many of the project management and productivity tools we use in separate platforms, such as Kanban boards, calendars, spreadsheets, and more. 

This course is designed to give you an overview of this tool, while also walking you through a few specific projects so that you can actually build out a system in Notion. 

By the end of this course, you’ll have created some invaluable pages in your Notion system and can continue to build upon them to get the most out of this awesome tool. This course makes use of Notion’s free tools, so you don’t have to have a premium Notion account to complete any of the activities.
