I just finished a Online Correspondence course-Internet Specialist which had a little information on Web Design. I am looking into more Online Correspondence Courses and was just curious if anyone knows of any Good Canadian Online Classes, Diploma, Degree Courses. I have to do it on my own time so one that covers the most ground and helps me get closer to what I want. Also, any advice on the best programs everyone uses and likes so I have an idea which programs to start learning. That would be awesome. Thanks.

Hi lms

what are you wanting to cover and get out of it?

I want to learn how to do every trick to design a top of the line website and all the ins and outs of the internet. I don't have the time and money to go to school full time so I thought correspondence. I want to eventually make a career out of it, but I don't know what programs are best. That's why I thought I would ask everyones opinions on what they use and if they like it or not.

Honestly, I think your best shot would be to do your own research online, and buy a few books yourself. There are many forums like this one on the web, and often people are very helpful in providing information and explanations on how to do things. As far as software goes, it would benefit you the most to get a basic code editor like TextPad and learn to code.

Learn your self. Half the courses out there are out of date. I had a laugh when I went to do A-Level computing when they taught HTML - everything was tables framesets, and the dreaded <font> tags! Not a drop of CSS. - I then i was magically skipped a year and was offered an early place on a degree - but you have to be careful in what you pick most are not just web design either. There isn't always a happy medium between design and code so learning yourself is always easier, then you can just walk your degree!
