Course Description

Looking for an easy to use todo list manager that will actually help you to complete the things on your todo list?

Trello is a free online task manager that can be accessed using any web browser (or IOS and Android apps) and that supports simplified todo list management through a drag & drop interface.

Looking for an easy to use project manager that will allow you to work in teams?

Trello is a fully collaborative software tool that allows groups of people to work on shared projects moving tasks from concept through completion.

Looking for sophisticated task management that will allow you to manage large teams of people working toward a common goal?

Trello allows you to fully document each task in a project while also tracking estimated time against time actually spent.

So, how does Trello differ from any other todo list or task manager?

Trello allows you to organize multiple project into separate Boards. People can be invited to work together on boards granting different administrative privileges to each person. Each Trello Board is composed of multiple Lists with each list being associated with a phase of the project. For example, your lists might include:

  • Todo - All tasks anyone can think of to work on.
  • Selected - The tasks selected for this project.
  • Working On - Tasks currently being worked on.
  • On Hold - Tasks that are awaiting something.
  • Completed - Completed Tasks
  • Rejected - Rejected Tasks

Cards are added to a Board to represent individual tasks. Cards are moved from one List to the next to represent advancement through the phases of a project development from initial concept all the way to completion.

Initially developed to track software development projects, I will be showing you how to use Trello to track everything from Udemy course development to organizing a party

Trello is free. Trello is easy to use. Trello is intuitive. Trello is powerful. Trello will store you project data safely online and make it available on all your devices. Trello can be used to manage collaborative efforts.

So, what are you waiting for. Increase your productivity 10 fold using this leading task management tool.

Remember: Udemy offers a 30 day money back guaranty if you aren't 100% satisfied with this course, so you have nothing to lose.

I look forward to seeing you in the classroom.

Instructor Biography

Author/Publisher Brian Jackson, 28 Courses, 1,850+ Reviews, 4.58 Stars and 38,000+ Students

Born in Los Angeles, California, in the middle of the last century, I have always wanted to be a writer. After twenty-five some odd years spent working in the computer industry in the heart of the Silicon Valley, first for Lockheed as a Systems Programmer and later for Cisco Systems as a test tool developer, I managed to retire early and begin my next career as a self-published author.

Along with writing and publishing my own novels I also publish the works of my wife, Melanie Jackson. During the past four years I’ve published well over 100 books in paperback and eBook formats. Oddly enough this includes eBooks on how to self-publish books and how to create professional looking book covers using the GIMP. I’ve also recorded and distributed a pair of audiobooks available for purchase on Amazon and Audible. Finally, I spend a portion of my time maintaining both my website and my wife’s website, which was developed using WordPress.

My latest endeavor, begun in July of 2014, is to record training courses for distribution via Udemy. My goal is to provide low cost high quality screen cast based educational material focusing on my area of expertise; namely, self-publishing and book cover design using the GIMP. As time permits, I plan to expand my catalog to cover Web page development and Udemy course preparation.

I currently live in the beautiful California wine country with my wife, published author Melanie Jackson, and Butterscotch the cat.
