Tuition & Learning outside of the classroom – update


An update to my post last October about learning resources as there’s a new website on the block offering a range of books and videos to view online. looks like a great resource for studying creative computer applications online and has the advantage over the likes of of including books as well as videos.

Publishers include Apple Training, Adobe Press, Peachpit Press, Visual Quickstart and Talented Pixie. I recommended Talented Pixie in the October post and having them included on Creative Edge makes for better value for your subscription.

At the moment they’re running a 20% introductory discount on subscriptions: $20 per month or $220 per year (£12.50 or £137 in UK money at current rates).

Helpfully, they allow you to view samples of both videos & books. Here’s a sample for a page from Real World Adobe InDesign CS4 and here’s Talented Pixie’s InDesign CS4 – Level 1 where you can play the whole of the first tutorial – The Interface – and then the first 30 seconds of the rest.

The book preview section is handy if you want to look at books that you might want to get from the library without having to leave the computer.
