GET FEEDBACK ON YOUR WORK, Even If You're online

As an online student, you'll meet with your instructor at a weekly video-conference where you'll receive critique and feedback on your work. You might also see a live demonstration, participate in a Q & A session, or meet an invited industry guest. 

All students work with a customized learning system that allows for easy communication and detailed critiques. Instructors can mark-up your work and can even give you video or audio feedback to help you improve.

WORK WITH OTHER CREATIVES

You may be working from the comfort of home, but that doesn't mean you can't collaborate with your peers. Our courses allow student creatives, (like aspiring copywriters and art directors or designers), to team up for a better experience and better work, even when working remotely. Each course includes a discussion and a gallery area to exchange ideas, post work, and collaborate.
