The E-course...

Yay Saturday!

Today I am pondering on how amazing technology has become, and especially how useful, challenging and creative it can be! Therefore I am sharing information today on the various e-courses that are exactly this! From online classrooms to online seminars and lectures it amazing how one can learn right in the comfort of your own home!

Now don't get me wrong, I love sitting in a lecture at University frantically taking notes, but if it's creativity you want the latest e-courses can provide!

I recently registered for Michelle Fifi's live training event (below) also know as @PATTERNOBSERVER on twitter. I will also be taking part in Rachael Taylor's and Beth Nicholl's 'The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design' in a few months (also below). Cannot wait!!!

So check out just a few of the available e-courses and enjoy! Kelly :)
