In my search for information on crafting I came across Creative Live.
It is an online “classroom” filled with lots of different classes on a wide variety of subjects. Occasionally they have free classes and I have taken a few of them so far. One was on making concertina collage books. Another was on making altered book boxes. Some were on maximizing my Etsy site and one on email marketing. I was able to view the whole class and take notes, even ask questions, all for free. Those were just the ones I was most interested in but they also have a lot of free ones on many other subjects:
Photo and Video
Art and Design
Music and Audio
Craft and Maker
Money and Life
The free classes generally run for 24 hours so, depending on how long the class is, you can sometimes watch it twice. You can also buy the classes so that you can download them and access them as many times as you want, something I am seriously considering doing since I just looked at the notes I took on one of the classes and I can’t read my own writing! I was taking notes too fast and incompletely.
Right now they are having a sale on some of the classes.
At only $19 it is worth it to me to buy the ones that will help me with my marketing and optimizing my Etsy site. I may even take one on photography to enhance my concert photo skills! Or maybe one on writing. Perhaps I have a novel bursting to come out!
How about you? Ever want to take an online class? Learn some new skills or brush up on some rusty ones? Give it a try!
