What is Domestika?
Domestika is much more than an online course platform . At the beginning, Domestika was simply a community of members of the creative industry in all its different fields.
These creative professionals shared their knowledge and learned from each other to become one of the communities with the greatest growth and projection.
While their forums became places of shared knowledge and the most interesting projects were shared, some of the best job offers also began to emerge that gave rise to the current section, one of the most interesting to find jobs in the creative sector .
Continuing with the founding idea, a few years ago Domestika began to design and produce different online courses with its best professionals. Currently, the Domestika community is the largest community of online creatives who participate in the project through their online courses, by offering jobs or sharing their experiences and creative processes.
To this day, Domestika is the largest creative platform in Spain with courses of all kinds, projects and offers that allow you to learn from home with all the facilities.
One of the advantages of Domestika’s courses for this back to school is its 100% online nature. These courses are carried out directly from the Domestika user profile, so to do them it is only necessary to have a good internet connection.
Also, once you purchase a course, you can do it whenever you want. The courses Domestika not expire and you will always have the material at your disposal if you need to keep an eye on anything.
This means that there are no deadlines or dates, you can start, pause or continue the course at any time, depending on your availability.
For this reason, Domestika courses are highly demanded by professionals and parents. They are courses that adapt to the little free time they have, being able to do more or less according to the personal circumstances of each one.
This is not to say that there is no feedback. Each course has its own internal community, which allows interaction and learning with the rest of the students who have acquired it at some point and with the teacher himself. This creates an ideal place to exchange ideas, ask for advice, share work or even publish the final project of the course.
The teachers are professionals from the creative sector with extensive experience in what they teach. Their job will be to guide the student through different online lessons in which there will be space to share their knowledge, influences, techniques and even their career.
Through video lessons, homework and explanatory texts, you will have all the necessary resources and complementary documents to carry out the final project of each course.
As we have already mentioned, the only requirement is to have a profile in the community , which is very easily created through Facebook, Google or with a username and password, to have a device with an internet connection.
Although for some courses it is more convenient to do it on a PC, there are also others that you can do without problem from your mobile phone or tablet, through the Domestika app .
