Thanks again for a very well constructed class."

"I have taken many courses through ed2go and this is one of the best."
"I have used CorelDraw occasionally for years without fully utilizing some of the powerful features that this great drawing program has to offer. The lessons and assignments did an awesome job of utilizing many of the tools in the software. I will now be better prepared to draw more complex drawings with much more ease. Thank you!"
"Intro to CorelDraw was extremely helpful to me. I have used several tutorials in the past, but this course gave such a great overview of Corel, especially in addressing the object manager...Thank you."
"I purchased Corel Draw for my home use and it was just collecting dust because I did not know how to use it. This course was extremely informative and helpful to get me started on my own projects. It covered a significant portion of the product but was very understandable and easy to follow. Thanks very much for the quick start to Corel Draw!""I really enjoyed this course. John is a great instructor. The questions and answers were very helpful too. Now I feel confident enough to learn more on my own and eventually use CorelDraw for my home business. I look forward to taking more online classes."

ExpertRating Online CorelDraw Course Coverage (6 weeks program)  

Week One

Wednesday - Lesson 01

CorelDraw is different from other image editing applications in that it is vector-based. Many other image editing applications will force you to work with graphics in a bitmap format. Do you know the difference between bitmap and vector images? Before you open CorelDraw, this lesson will describe the differences, explain the pros and cons, and then show you some examples of each format. Afterward, you'll tour CorelDraw to see how some of the menus and tools are arranged. Then students will jump right into it and draw some shapes with the Smart Drawing tool. You'll also learn how to use the Zoom tool, the Hand tool, and the Pick tool.

Friday - Lesson 02

This lesson is all about the meat and potatoes of CorelDraw: the shape-creation tools. This lesson will start with the basics—using the Ellipse tool and the Rectangle tool to draw circles, squares, and rectangles. Then you'll practice using the Polygon tool, the Spiral tool, the Star tool, and the Perfect Shape tool to draw more intricate shapes. Afterward, you'll form your shapes into images using the weld function. Finally, you’ll get a chance to practice adding colors to your newly created designs.

Week Two

Wednesday - Lesson 03

This lesson is going to dig a little deeper into CorelDraw drawing tools as you learn how to create lines. You'll start with the Freehand tool, which simulates drawing with a pen or pencil on a piece of paper, but with an automated twist that makes it much easier to use. Then this lesson will explore the Outline tools. Outlines are the lines that form and surround shapes and objects, and you'll use the Outline tools to format, shape, and color those same lines. Afterward, the lesson will move on to curves and you'll learn how to use the Three-Point Curve tool and the Bézier tool to draw both simple and complex curves. Finally, you'll learn about the Artistic Media tool, which enables you to apply effects, styles, and objects to ordinary lines.

Friday - Lesson 04

This lesson will take a break from drawing tools and instead concentrate on layers. Layers are invisible planes that contain information about each object. You'll use them to organize, edit, and manage your drawings. Just as shapes are the building blocks of a drawing, layers are the frames that support those building blocks. The lesson will begin by layering one of your drawings from a previous lesson followed by learning how to layer as you create a new design.

Week Three

Wednesday - Lesson 05-

Did you also know that CorelDraw supplies you with a complete desktop publisher? In this lesson, you'll create a two-page newsletter using this feature. As you assemble your newsletter, you'll also learn how to set up a drawing page with the Page tab, apply and use guidelines, input and import text with the Text tool, and import objects into designs.

Friday - Lesson 06

The discussion on text will continue in this lesson, but this time it will concentrate on artistic text. You'll learn how to shape, form, and adjust artistic text to follow the path of an object or line. Afterward, you'll fill objects with color transitions, patterns, textures, and elaborate designs using CorelDraw fill tools. Then you'll apply what you've learned to create an original logo.

Week Four

Wednesday - Lesson 07

In this lesson, you'll explore one of the favorite CorelDraw subjects—applying special effects to designs. First, you'll learn how to cast shadows on objects using the Interactive Drop Shadow tool. This is an excellent effect to use when you want to add a little realism to your objects. Then you’ll learn how to create see-through objects using the Interactive Transparency. You'll also practice transforming ordinary 2-D shapes into 3-D objects using the Extrusion tool.

Friday - Lesson 08

You'll get a chance to put all your CorelDraw skills to work in this lesson because this lesson will pull together as many different elements from what you've been learning into an apple design. This will give you more insight into how CorelDraw tools interact and show you some practical applications for these same tools. You'll also learn about shaping tools, including the Knife tool, the Eraser tool, the Smudge Brush, and the Roughen Brush. You'll mostly use these tools to shape, modify, adjust, and enhance objects after you’ve drawn them.

Week Five

Wednesday - Lesson 09

In lesson 9 the exploration of special effects will continue, beginning with Power Clips. You'll use the Power Clip effect to place one object inside of another. This is a great way to incorporate bitmaps or photographs into your designs. Then students will take some ordinary shapes and completely transform them into amazing objects using the Interactive Distortion tool. Finally, you'll draw some balloons as you learn how to use the Eyedropper and Paint bucket tools, which allow you to copy the properties from one particular object into a completely different object.

Friday - Lesson 10

Once again, this lesson will concentrate on desktop publishing as you create custom-designed envelopes, business cards, and address labels while learning to use the Page Size window. Then you'll learn how to create a CD cover using a CorelDraw template. Not only will you learn how to choose from the huge selection of templates, you'll also create your own business stationary template to accompany the envelope, business card, and address labels you just designed. Then to top it all off, you'll design an original birthday card using the Page Layout window.

Week Six

Wednesday - Lesson 11

This lesson is all about photographs. You'll start by bringing some life into a dull-looking photo using the Crop tool and the Image Adjustment Lab. Then you'll learn how to change ordinary photos into stunning works of art by applying spectacular effects with artistic strokes, abstract patterns, and 3-D effects. You'll also learn how to convert photographs into sleek designs using PowerT

Friday - Lesson 12

In the final lesson, you'll design a series of presentations using drawings you've created throughout this class, and then you'll learn how to export them into different formats. This will enable you to post them on the Internet, insert them into documents and presentations, or email them to a friend in an easy-to-open format. This lesson will start by going over the Export window, which converts CorelDraw designs into various formats, and in turn allows you to view and update these same designs using all types of software. Then it will focus on specific formats, including Portable Network Graphics (PNG) and Portable Document Format (PDF). Finally, this lesson will conclude the class by creating an original Web page!
