Why the Academy of Web Design Training Course is Better
David Lieberman founded the Academy of Web Design in 2000 because he thought web design could be taught more effectively. Most web design classes teach little more than software operation, what button does what, and what HTML code does what. We show you how to be a successful web designer even if you're just building a web site for yourself.
If you want to effectively build professional web pages, you'll have to be familiar with web usability issues, psychological design issues, and the correct way to match your users' emotional desires. Of course, you'll also need to know how to market a web site so it makes money!
The Academy of Web Design also offers your very own web design trainer who you can email when you have questions, need project feedback, or a little extra help.
We're extremely dedicated to making sure that you have the right instruction to allow you to succeed, and we take that responsibility very seriously.

How our Web Design Training Works
You will receive new web design course "sessions" on DVD ROM disks through the mail, including printable material, suggested homework, and support materials. Each web design course session should take you a couple of hours to complete. The sessions include suggested homework assignments, which can take anywhere from 1-2 hours. You can follow your own pace or use our schedule to give structure to your learning.
The web design course videos are designed to allow you to follow along while you learn. You'll be instructed to pause the video and try out your new skills as you go along. Practice builds retention and understanding, so we think that this is a very important part of our session.
