Best Online Courses in Art Studies 2019

An online course is a 21st-century update on the traditional student experience of teachers, students and structured classrooms in typical institutions of learning. Instead of a traditional classroom setting, an online course is taken remotely using a laptop or desktop computer.

What is an online course in art studies? This type of course offers a broad curriculum of classes collectively designed to improve creativity, bolster communication and enhance critical thinking overall. Courses may concentrate on language, cultural studies, art history or other topics generally associated with building capacity for innovative expression. Coursework and assignments can focus on the creation of original artwork, analysis of existing works or extensive writing. Students gain important insights into culture and society as reflected via creative works.

The benefits of an online course in the arts can be immediate. Coursework can equip students with new ways of approaching existing work as well as valuable problem-solving and analysis tools. Taking an online course can show initiative that can impress your current employer as well as future and potential employers.

The cost of an online course in the arts varies widely based on factors such as the school you choose and the technology used to deliver the class. Contact the school or program that most interests you to get the most current cost estimates.

Because online courses in the arts are so diverse, they typically prepare students for an equally diverse selection of career options. Coursework in language arts, for instance, can help prepare students interested in jobs as translators, teachers or international business persons. Courses in graphic art, meanwhile, can create opportunities in user experience and web design.

An online course in the arts can be the ticket to creating a new career. The key to unlocking these opportunities is getting started. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The Webmaster - Responsive Web Design Course is for students with a pre-existing knowledge of HTML and CSS, and is an ideal follow-on programme for those completing the Webmaster HTML & CSS module for beginners, this course teaches you all you need to know about responsive web design (RWD), and provides you with the know-how to build stunning, responsive websites using the very latest HTML5 and CSS3 technology. The burgeoning number of users who access the Internet via smartphones and tablet computers means that modern web designers must build pages that are responsive to the screen size, automatically adjusting the content to suit the user's device. Responsive web design is a methodology which aims at providing an optimal viewing experience – easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling – across a wide range of devices, from computer monitors, through laptops and tablets, to smartphones. A responsive website automatically adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries. During the course, as well as learning the important responsive web design techniques, you will be introduced to all of the important new HTML5 elements and, via the magic of CSS3, you will apply a range of special effects, including transitions, transformations, and animations. You will marvel at the new HTML5 API's which allow you, for example, to incorporate brilliant drag & drop and geo-location map facilities into your website, as well as the versatile canvas API which allows...
