I LOVE playing around with my blog’s themes. If you have followed me long enough, you know up front that you may come here one day and see it look one way, and then in the middle of the night, I may have changed it around to a totally different look on you. I have learned a LOT about web design through the years on my own as a result. Shoot, I was more into my husband’s web design classes than he was because it intrigued me to pieces!
As a homeschool mother, I know the value that the online world has made in our lives. I have personally earned my associate’s degree online, and if I could get someone to pay for my last eight classes for my bachelor’s project management degree, I’d finish that out too. (I said to find someone to pay for it because at the rate things are going, it’s hard to pay the bills we HAVE to pay each month right now, let alone come up with the funds to finish college right now.) Del completed his classes online. Our kids currently attend an online public school (Hence, the Internet is such a vital part of our lives!)
When Webucator reached out to me about sharing their new program with you, I jumped at it because it is a program that is truly amazing! They have set up online classes to prepare others for how things are done now and in the future. I sincerely believe that before my kids are done with high school, the world as we know it will be changed!
I have seen more and more companies shutting down their brick-and-mortar stores and doing their businesses online. Honestly, I don’t blame them one bit for doing that. Even Sears has ordered online and drive-thru and picked up your order. This has become common in many businesses.
Some courses on Webucator include Business Management, CSS, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and many more. As you can see from the image, there is almost something for everyone in your family. They are straightforward, self-paced courses to take. They are very well broken down with all the software you need to learn the materials. This program is a great way to help prepare our kids for the future.
Webucator would love to offer my readers a free chance to take these classes. To do that, you need to order your course and enter the coupon code: HOMESCHOOL. Please beware that if you get these free courses, there is no support to help you if you run into issues. However, I’ve seen that it’s not overly hard to use, and their system works well.
You can find out more information about Webucator by visiting their website. You can also connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.
What course would you use?

Wow what a great idea. I have the link open and I’m so interested to see what they offer. Thanks so much for sharing this!
I know how to do a lot of those things thanks to my husband 😉 But CSS is one that I don’t have in depth knowledge of so that would probably appeal to me the most.
That’s the one I’ve started taking. I’m still not spending as much time doing the actual class as I should!
Photoshop! Though that might be difficult since I don’t have a copy of it. 🙂
I’ve noticed that whatever class they give you, you also get the required software you need to complete the class too (even if it’s just trial period long enough for you to do the class.)
I am amazed at how many places are going online. When it comes to school, I actually do really well with online classes. Sometimes I wish I had time to go back and get my 4-year degree in Biology, but there just isn’t enough time or money. I love that you gave some resources that people can use!
I totally agree with you that there are a lot of things available online now that wasn’t available many years ago.
As the old saying goes, we make time for the things in life that we really want to do. Maybe one day when your kids are older you can pursue your Biology degree. I personally struggled big time in that subject so my hat goes off to you for wanting to learn that topic.
I learned everything I know through the internet but a class would be fun to pick up on a few things I might not be aware of.
This is so true. The Internet is filled with so many resources that can teach you almost anything you want to know.
That sounds look a good site! I am going to go check it out now.
I would love to have you hop over and share with us at Inspire Us Tuesday
I was quite impressed with the site and all it had to offer. Thank you for the invite to the Blog Hop. I love Blog Hops. I haven’t been able to visit them that much this week because things have been super duper crazy here! I feel like I don’t know if I’m coming or going. However, that’s also when I know we are actually living life to the fullest, if you know what I mean.
That is so nice of them! I might take the photoshop course.
That would be like heaven for you. My husband took some Photoshop classes in college, but I personally couldn’t grasp my head around it because I was only getting little bits and pieces of the lessons.
I honestly spend to much time learning things that really aren’t going to make me grow worth a hill of beans. I really should be taking that time making more quality content!
I would like to learn more about excel.
What would you like to know about Excel? It’s one of my favorite Microsoft programs.
I used to dabble a lot in web design before turning one of my web-sites into a blog. I haven’t done so much now since I’m always afraid that my blog will go to kaput, especially with WordPress! I possibly wouldn’t mind taking a course on the web design in the future, though. I’d also love to take a photography course.
I love to dabble with web design, but I still have a lot left to learn.
Am very curious to see all they offer! Thx for linking this up at the thoughtful spot!
You’re welcome. They do have a lot of awesome classes.
