Since launching our DoubleClick Rich Media Education Program, we've seen developers become more productive with ad creation and media agencies more effectively manage rich media creatives for display campaigns. But with increased adoption of HTML5 and the success of dynamic creative ad formats, we've heard from you that we need to both streamline training across products and customize it for the right user, while also adding more training content for advanced topics.

So, we've made a few changes to consolidate all training resources for each user, by role.

Rich Media and Studio training for creative agencies and developers

We've updated DoubleClick Rich Media Fundamentals eLearning & Certification to better align with Studio Certification. Focused toward creative agencies and developers, Rich Media Fundamentals eLearning provides an overview of DoubleClick Rich Media and Studio, and helps you ramp up on rich media basics at your own pace.

In Rich Media Fundamentals, you’ll learn how to:
  • Build Flash and HTML5 creatives
  • Publish to QA
  • Use the API
  • Build dynamic creatives and create/edit rules 
  • Resolve common live issues
Rich Media Fundamentals includes a certification exam at the end of the course. Pass the exam and you'll get a printable certificate of completion you can use to show your proficiency.

Rich Media Fundamentals can benefit creative developers through faster creative builds, more efficient QA, and reduced turnaround times, and is a great introduction for Studio users who want to take Studio Certification to demonstrate expertise in building rich media ads.

Rich Media training for media agencies and marketers

  1. We've revised DFA Academy to include a Rich Media Checklist (previously Rich Media Academy). If you're a media planner or ad trafficker, use the checklist to learn rich media during basic DFA training and be better equipped to know how rich media works in the context of display campaigns. (DFA Sign-in required) 
  2. We've updated DFA Fundamentals eLearning & Certification to include an optional DoubleClick Rich Media module. Ad traffickers at a media agency might only need a higher level of training compared to a creative developer designing an ad, so we’ve added a rich media overview to DFA Fundamentals (Enroll -- DFA sign-in required) 
  3. We've added a rich media live issues section to the DFA Help Center to help media agencies who manage rich media creatives in DFA to troubleshoot common issues. (DFA sign-in required)
