Getting a teacher or signing up for architectural design training in your local academy is a good idea. But most of us do not have the time or money to do that. I remember when I started learning web designs in 2016. I couldn’t afford to pay the N50,000 web design training fee but I had spare N1,000 that I could use for data.

A few months after, I designed my first site and I could do it even better. The internet has made life easier for us. The impact has also affected the way we learn. YouTube has over 1 billion hours of video per day with tons of tutorial on almost anything. Today, we had made this collection of top youtube channels to learn Architecture. Let’s get started.
