eLearning: Graphic Design Education and Classes for Everyone

seminarIf you are a web designer, photographer, fashion designer, or anyone in design or media, you are constantly seeking to improve your skills.

You may be attending college or a graphic design school, but you still want to get that extra edge by going to outside seminars or presentations.

Classes and Seminars You Can't Go To
As you surf the web, you see the perfect seminar on design class.

A well respected person is giving her lecture and you want to sign up immediately. That is, until you find out that the seminar is clear across the country. You sigh and think, "I would have really loved to attend that presentation."

calendarIn some cases, seminars you want to attend are near enough for you to go to, but the big problem is the timing.

Your weekends are full and your weekdays are taken up by work or college.

What can you do if the seminars or special classes aren't conveniently scheduled or too out of the way for you to attend?

The solution isn't a plane ticket and you can't beam yourself over to the location like they do on the Star Trek television shows. Or can you? Well, you almost can...

lampThe Magic Education Genie: eLearning
There is an answer and that answer is eLearning or electronic learning.

In its most encompassing definition, eLearning is more than online institutions of education such as graphic design colleges.

eLearning encompasses DVDs, CD ROMs, online knowledge databases, static and interactive online courses, and what most of us are familiar with; online graphic design schools.

There are several advantages to eLearning:

* An online seminar training course or series of design articles can be taken according to your schedule and convenience

* There can be increased retention of material due to interactive elements of the subject learned. Multimedia, audio, and animation make the learning experience more enjoyable and memorable*

* eLearning courses can progress up to 50% faster than traditional classroom learning because the eLearner can skip through content that is already familiar, or move ahead faster according to her ability to assimilate information

* eLearning can be less expensive when compared to traditional seminar presentations or classes

There is a wealth of learning materials on the Internet that is accessable at no charge.

Photography support groups, web design forums, fashion design help groups, design idea sites, and other online resources are there at the motion of a few mouse clicks.

The advantages of eLearning, as it relates to specific venues such as seminars and training classes, can be also said of online college education.

So if you are seeking extra training in your field of study, look to eLearning as a rich resource that is at your command.
