If you’re looking to learn all about web design and don’t know where to start there are a few options to get going. You could either find a friend that is willing to teach you, you could take a web design class or you could buy a course. Let’s explore these options to see what is the best for you.
Have a Friend Help You With Web Design
If you are fortunate enough to have a friend who was either learned on his own are went to school for web design he or she may be willing to help you. Do not expect to learn too much as web design can be a very complex and long learning curve. In this case the best scenario would be to use WordPress. WordPress is a content management system that makes it very easy to create a website as the framework is already completed. Your friend would have a much easier time teaching you have to use WordPress rather than teaching to HTML for example.
Take A Class
If you have the time you may be able to enrol yourself into a web design class at a local school near you. Many colleges will offer evening courses on web design if you’re working fulltime so you could learn without having to sacrifice your job. There are also online classes available which can also help but these tend to be a little frustrating because getting help is not easy. For some people this may work though so it is really a matter of preference.
Buy a Course
There’s also an option to buy a course on web design. You can learn on your own time and similar to an online course you do have availability to get support but is not as instant as it would be if you were taking the course in person with a live instructor. If you are good at working by yourself and can take in information quickly than getting a course is a great option.
You will want to get reviews on these courses as it is essential to get feedback from what others are saying. There are many review websites online that will let you know if a course is good or not. Most of these reviewers have already taken the course and can advise you on whether it is a good purchase or not. A lot of times they want even offer a bonus if you buy the course from their link but of course they will get a commission. This does not make the price higher for you at all as the commission is paid from the vendor. It’s a great option if you are looking to self learn web design.
