I just finished my second class in Graphic Design and I have mixed feelings. The classes are scheduled webinars that are only interactive through Morpheus ( I think that is it's name) smart response program. We're encouraged to email the instructor if questions are not answered by Morpheus in the text. I cannot wrap my mind around why I need to schedule a class that is not a "live" class. You're instructed to be on time only to have to click a start icon only to be told when you've already invested your time in to not worry if you miss a class, you can find them in your toolkit. If this is supposed to be a learn at your own pace, then everything should be accessible upon completion of each segment, on one's own time. Instead, I have to wait until my next scheduled class.
What I liked at first was that the instruction is beginner basic level, but I am beginning to believe it is almost TOO basic. Although I was engaged and enjoyed learning some history of Graphic Design in week one and what the rest of the course would cover, I am extremely disappointed in my second class. It was a total waste of my valuable time. I learned my color wheel in early grade school art class and anyone getting into graphic design should already have a basic understanding of art concepts such as lines, direction, mass, texture, etc. Because of their marketing system, I've already invested in my tool kit and certificate.
I will finish this course because I intentionally paid for my certificate ahead to give myself the extra push in my already crazy busy schedule. However, If week three does not actually get into what I thought I was paying for, I will likely cancel and cut my minor losses early. Hanging on to hope that my next class will provide more value.
One last thing - before I can post this, I am required to choose the stars for ordering, service, pricing, and delivery - which of course - are SUPER easy and deserve the 5 stars. Where are the review questions for the course? Marking all as a three for that reason alone.
