Add a vital new dimension to your creative curriculum
The FunctionFox Student Program offers a unique and easy way to add real-world project management skills to any design curriculum. Using FunctionFox — the creative industry's leading timesheet and project management software — students learn to be accountable for their time and to manage multiple concurrent projects. Not only will students become better at managing their academic assignments, they will also develop skills that prepare them for success in the workplace.
Why Learning to Manage Time is Important
The reality is that for most people in the design industry, skills in time and project management as well as client communication are almost as important as having an outstanding portfolio. For many design graduates, delivering a project within budget, on schedule, and with a professional level of accountability is as challenging as coming up with a winning concept. Students who develop these skills during their education will have a very real advantage in the competitive design world.
How FunctionFox can make your Curriculum better
We offer FunctionFox software free for students throughout their education - and for a full six months after they graduate. During this time, students learn to be accountable for the time they spend on projects — school assignments, pro-bono projects, and eventually, paid work. They learn how to juggle multiple projects, and how to communicate clearly with their teachers, team members and clients. Once they graduate, these students are ready to hit the ground running.
To be sure they get the most out of our Student program, a FunctionFox representative will provide training and support through email, phone and scheduled Webinars.
