Considering taking an online class? It’s a great way to expand your knowledge from the comfort of your own home (in your pajamas, even)! As I work on my own version of online educational videos, I’ve been getting to know several other creative professionals who are sharing their knowledge through e-courses this winter and throughout the year. Check out the list below – maybe you’ll find one that’s just right for you. Juice your creativity with virtual learning, and gain a skill that will last your lifetime!
