Noble Desktop instructors have been teaching graphic and web development skills since 1991. And though their curricula may have changed over the years, their commitment to hands-on learning hasn't. Using what they call the "learn, then practice method," instructors write custom workbooks for their students, who then practice the lessons on classroom computers. Because Macs and PCs are provided, students don't have to bring their own laptops or weird glowing roommates named HAL. Class topics range from software- and site-specific techniques to broader topics in the field of web development. Before they decide on a field of study to pursue, prospective students can attend a Noble Desktop free seminar, which are designed to give people a taste of the Noble teaching philosophy before they enroll.
