I have alway been creative and interested in Graphic Design but never had any formal training. Ideally I would like to return to University to do a degree in Graphic Design, but due to time and financial contraints this isn't possible.

Can you suggest some good OpenCourseWare courses for Graphic Design (Print or Web)? The best I have found so far have been some tutorial articles, but I would prefer something that has better coverage of the theory.

You're not going to find any OCW stuff for graphic design, because MIT doesn't have any graphic design courses, and OCW is MIT's thing. – dkuntz2 Jan 9 '11 at 0:04

Teach Yourself Graphic Design is a series of articles that comes highly recommended.

Not OpenCourseWare. Just tutorials. – dkuntz2 Jan 12 '11 at 14:31

Peer 2 Peer University has a couple of classes that are open for registration right now. One is Intro to Design and Usability which is focused on web design.

There will probably be more design courses in upcoming semesters too.
