Online Photo classes
 
One of the schools I teach at will be offering online classes, at the college level, starting in January. They will include basic photo classes, PS CS and Elements, B & W photo etc., seven different classes in all. These classes will be available to anyone with broadband access. They will be 6 weeks in length, but some, such as the PS classes may be 8 weeks. More advanced classes will be offered in the spring as class rosters grow. Costs will be approximately $100 USD for the photo classes and $150 USD for the PS classes. College credit may be available, but can't be confirmed at this date. If credit is available, those electing credit will pay a much higher fee. A certificate of completion will be offered and may be suitable for reimbursement from many employers. I'm looking into discounts for DV Info members, but no promises.

I'm interested in any and all feedback and impressions on online courses. Have you ever taken any, why or why not? If you can offer any suggestions or comments please do so, either here or via email. Thanks for your assistance in this matter.

Jeff,

I am slightly hard of hearing(about a third loss), so the idea of online classes is interesting. I can always learn more, so keep us posted on the class list and info.

Thanks for the comments John. You might also want to look at this thread for some more information on the classes. I don't think they'll be officially announced until November.

Jeff,

An online class appeals to me because I sometimes spend as much as 30% or 40% of my time on the road. Most of the hotels Iím in have broadband access. My frenetic lifestyle means I often learn software by figuring out how to use the tools I need most. Learning Photoshop from the beginning to end would definitely improve my workflow and skills. Please keep me posted.

Steve
