Breakout FAQ

BREAKOUTS: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Please tell me more about your Breakouts.

The Click Photo School Breakout is open to all photographers, members and non-members alike. It consists of a set of educational material– this generally includes a PDF and a set of videos, although you can find the specifics included in each Breakout on the Breakout page.

Once you register, you will have access to the Breakout forum in Click Photo School. There you will find a link to download all of the materials (these are yours to keep) as well as an area to submit questions for the presenter. The presenter will choose from a selection of participant-submitted questions when she puts together her Question and Answer video near the end of the session. The Question and Answer session is available for download prior to the end of the Breakout and is also yours to keep.

In the Breakout forum, participants can start discussions, share photographs, and interact with other Breakout participants. Occasionally, the Breakout presenter will also join in the discussions as well!

Help! I’ve registered, but I don’t know where to find my breakout session.

Go to www.clickinmoms.com and log in. Click on “View: My Classes” in the gray menu bar to view the Click Photo School Forums. You’ll find your Breakout Session there. Enjoy!

Do I need to be a member to purchase a Breakout?

No– you definitely don’t need to be a Clickinmoms member or a Click subscriber to participate. All Click Photo School workshops and Breakouts are open to everyone!

I missed the first few days of the Breakout. If I sign up now can I catch up?

You haven’t missed a thing! As soon as you sign up you’ll have access to the Breakout materials– you can download them and go through them at your own pace. You may find that other Breakout participants are posting questions and photographs in the Breakout forum– you will have access to those threads until the end of the Breakout if you’d like to read through them!

Do I have to be online at a certain time of day?

Our Breakouts are set up so that you can go read through the materials when it’s convenient for you. You’ll have 24 hour access to the Breakout forum (until the end date), so you can post your questions and photographs at any time of day for discussion with your peers. The materials are yours to keep!

Do you offer gift certificates or gift vouchers?

We do! If you’d like to purchase a Breakout or Workshop gift voucher for someone, click here.

What is the difference between a workshop and a Breakout?

Click Photo School workshops are multi-week, interactive classroom experiences. Each week students receive a set of course materials (so, if you are taking a four week course you will receive four sets of materials)-– these materials generally include a PDF and/or videos. Throughout the week, instructors and TAs are present in the forum every day to answer questions and offer encouragement. Students receive an assignment each week that pertains to the topics covered in the course materials and class discussion throughout the week. Full participation students receive instructor and TA feedback on every assignment and personalized guidance to acquire the covered skills. Workshop forums are open for eight weeks, although the materials are yours to keep forever.

Breakouts, on the other hand, consist of one set of materials. In the Breakout forum, participants can start discussions, share photographs, and interact with other Breakout participants. Occasionally, the Breakout presenter will also join in the discussions as well, although interaction between participants and presenters is limited. Breakout forums are open for one to two weeks, although the materials are yours to keep forever.
