What are Asana lessons?

Asana lessons are short slides that show you the most important features and workflows to get you up to speed on how to use Asana. They’re animated and only take a few minutes for each lesson. Once complete, you’ll have all the information you need to get started with Asana. Best of all, there’s no big test or presentation due at the end.
