Unlike the online workshops, where you’re “in class” for four weeks or eight weeks, Independent Study Workshops are completely work-at-your-own-pace. You can complete a class in a few days as an intensive crash course, or leisurely go through the materials as you have time on the weekends—whatever works best for you.
The advantage to taking our online web design classes is that you get to interact with other students and get advice from the instructor as you’re working on the material. But if you’re more of a lone wolf or don’t anticipate being able to do a class in four weeks, the independent studies are for you! When you buy a class, you can download a ZIP file of the class immediately. Unzip it, and you’ll be able to access all the course materials, which are in Word and PDF formats.
