    Default Looking for an Online Graphic Design Course

    I'm trying to find a good, solid online (or self-study) graphic design course. This is just for personal enrichment, not to fulfill any sort of requirements. I'm hoping to use what I learn at the small business where I work. I do marketing, advertising, and website admin.

    I've browsed online, but if anyone has some past experience with online graphic design courses, please let me know. Thanks!

    I was going to recommend Rio Salado college in Arizona, but the distance learning tuition is $215/cr. ouch! I have taken photoshop, and illustrator (among many other courses) from them, but it was in-state tuition for me.

    Actually, what helped me more than anything, especially for personal enrichment and to get through my actual classes(!) is Lynda.com Software training online-tutorials for Adobe, Microsoft, Apple & more. It is a goldmine of knowledge set up as a monthly or yearly membership. An incredible resource that I can't recommend highly enough!

    eclasses.org -course: Design Concepts, teacher: Astrid Garcia. My mom is a web designer and she was just thrilled with this class and teacher. She took it when she was first getting started and says she learned a ton from it. Good luck!

    Ready for your CLEP exam?

    Study for your exam using the same CLEP Study Guides used by thousands of members of this discussion forum!


    Both suggestions are great. Lynda.com is a great value and quick reference. I've been looking for a solid design basics book, so I ordered the one for the class PG recommended. It is excellent. If you do order it go with the second edition. eClasses.org*::*Course Catalog*::*Design Concepts
