Method

The course is divided into sections that each have individual tasks. Each task is initiated by a teacher led video lesson. You can follow the course on your screen and pause the lessons to follow with your own design project. The course requires you to purchase Adobe programs, which are available as a monthly subscription, with reasonable price. A digital pen tablet is also handy if you have one, but not necessary for the course.

You will be studying in our DesignWeb study platform, with the lectures and assignments available in an easy-to-use online environment. You’ll get access to DesignWeb right from signing up.
