I really am amazed with the web. Learning is just so different now. Instead of having to pay for journal subscriptions, professors are now putting their articles up for the public to view. In addition, institutions are also putting up video recorded lectures of classes. What I take advantage of though, are the wealth of online tutorials, especially for computer skills. I am not a graphic design guy, but in trying to come up with a marketing logo I was able to make a really cool looking Web 2.0 button.
If you want to learn a new skill, the web could be an invaluable tool. I found the tutorial for this button at Free Adobe Photoshop Tutorials. But you can learn lots of other DIY stuff as well. The web as learning tool…I really like that.
