The Academy provides the coursework—including beautifully produced videos, narrated slideshows, digital documents, interviews with experts, livestreams and more. As you complete assignments, you simply upload your work to the Academy’s custom-designed Learning Management System (LMS) where it’s shared with your class, and your instructor can leave visual markups, video, written and recorded feedback. Online courses at Academy of Art University are offered in 7.5 and 15 week formats.
