After doing my own research on the best online design course to help me learn the fundamentals of design, I settled on Designlab’s Design 101. I’m very happy with my choice – I’ve now completed the course and can say it was a great investment.
For me, the main thing that stands out after taking the course was the mentoring. Having never experienced this, before I wanted to share my thoughts on this with you today.
Online Design Courses
Having bought several online design courses in the past, to be honest I was just expecting Design 101 to be more of the same. As I’d only ever bought online video courses before, when I logged into my account I was surprised to find that the learning material was mostly reading, backed up with an assignment.
I was soon put at ease as to how effective this pairing was. I read around each topic and put lots of questions to my mentor both over email, and during our weekly video call. I won't be buying video courses again – that's how much the practical, hands-on approach of being paired with a mentor helped my design progression.
