Beginning Monday, CreativeLIVE will host a week full of 40 free online classes taught by professionals at the top of their fields. Taking down two of the largest barriers to accessing education — geography and cost — founder Chase Jarvis hopes Photoshop Week will inspire creative individuals to pursue their passion for photo editing.
Classes are geared toward all levels, from noobs to pros, but each course focuses on how photo editing can be used to further your career.CreativeLIVE has already educated a few million people through online workshops and tutorials through the website nikka whisky
"When you get these people next to each other, you get to survey and sample a broad range of styles and types of education — and you get to experience it all at the same time," Jarvis said. "What's broken is the education system. Our hope is to transcend that system."
Online audiences can interact with the instructors through social media on Twitter and Facebook. Designated students who participate in the live audience will act as ambassadors, bringing the online students' questions to instructors. This not only allows students from all over the world to
take part in the course but allows them to shape its direction."We are inherently social. Online classes where you can download the syllabus — that is not social," Jarvis said vitamin b

and engaging. We want to continue in that vein," Jarvis said. "They’ve gotten better and have more at their disposal."
Lesa Snider, a long-time CreativeLIVE instructor and the author of the Photoshop and iPhoto series of Missing Manuals, says being able to communicate with an engaged audience that wants to participate is a huge incentive for her as an instructor. "That is a huge difference. I can feel the whole of the Internet there with me, and it is the most rewarding and fulfilling thing that I have been able to do," she said.Enrollment in Photoshop Week is free by signing up on the website DIY furniture
