If you are a web designer, develop as many market-hot skills as possible. Go beyond listing experiences; focus on skills. Skills ARE your biggest security blanket! Flash is a tool for creating interactive and animated Web sites. The Adobe Flash course series at LVS Online Classes will take you through a step by step process to learn Flash from the ground up. By the time the series is finished, students have a wide range of knowledge to create a Flash website.
But did you know there are a lot of innovative Flash templates available on the web that make web design life a little easier? Flash templates are customizable so it helps to know at least the basics of Flash to be able to customze a chosen Flash template. After you learn Flash, you may want to check out such sites as Template Monster, Entheosweb, Best Web Templates. Most Flash template sites offer free templates – which would be a good way to learn how to get around in Flash templates before you purchase one if you choose to do so.
