Asynchronous Online Course
All of our courses for adults (ages 18+) are Asynchronous Online, with the exception of certificate Final Studio courses, which are Asynchronous Online with Live Sessions.
Asynchronous online courses can be taken anywhere in the world and at any time of the day or night, as there are no required meeting times. Course content is delivered weekly through Canvas, our learning management system, where you will:
- Learn from video demonstrations
- Read through course material
- Respond to discussion topics
- Share in-process and finished work
- Receive feedback from your instructors and classmates
Coursework is flexible and can be done on your own time, as long as it is completed within the assignment period. While this learning option offers great flexibility, the courses are not self-paced, and you will need to check in regularly to keep up with the workload.
See example (below) of a schedule for an asynchronous online course. When viewing the course information on our course registration system, you will see Online, Asynchronous listed under Type. Note that there are no scheduled meeting times.
