Yes, since ed2go courses are online, you never have to actually travel to the school. Most schools offer telephone or online registration.
This course is self-paced and open enrollment, so you can start when you want and finish at your own pace. When you register, you'll receive twelve (12) months to complete the course.
ed2go courses are non-credit courses, so they do not qualify for federal aid, FAFSA and Pell Grant. In some states, vocational rehab or workforce development boards will pay for qualified students to take our courses. Additionally, some students may qualify for financial assistance when they enroll, if they meet certain requirements. Financing is available from select schools.

Web designers work both independently and with others on a variety of day-to-day tasks and projects. Teamwork, relationship building, a solid skill set, and attention to detail are all keys to success. Typically web designers work in a traditional office setting, though more and more web designers work remotely. Web designers can be employees, freelance or contract workers, or self-employed individuals who own their own businesses. Specifics really depend on the company or institution’s size, work culture, and objectives.
The time allotted to complete your course has been calculated based on the number of course hours. If after a concerted effort, you are still unable to complete your course on time, your Student Advisor will help you work out a suitable completion date. Please note that a fee may be charged for an extension.
The terms “web design” and “web development” are frequently used interchangeably. However, in strict usage, web design refers to the visual elements of the site, such as layout and images. Web development is the process of making the website using programming languages. When you enroll with ed2go, you don’t even have to worry about the difference, because our course covers it all.
There are lots of ways to learn web design! You can obtain a two- or four-year degree if you like, but this route is expensive and usually not necessary. Some form of education is definitely recommended, however, in order for you to stand out in the field. Our online program is the perfect blend, teaching you everything you need to know while fitting into your busy schedule.
