Luckily for you, several universities and colleges offer the best free certified online graphic design courses. Get yourself relevant software such as Illustrator, Photoshop and Adobe Flash to get the best experience out of these courses. These are some of them:

For a free online web design course, consider:

Code School
“Learn by doing”: this is the motto of Code School. I think it is the best way one can learn web design. It is very suitable for beginners. They have various themes and games that make your learning so easy. The downside of Code School is they only offer eight introductory lessons.
