Review Academy of Art University
I have only had minor experience with online classes before attending AAU, but I was surprised at how organized and effective they were. It is very well structured and participation in discussion is required so there is a connection built between classmates. The workload is reasonable and the time given to complete readings and projects if sufficient. Media including instructional videos created directly by AAU teachers help immensely in learning how to use required software as well as learning all the techniques presented in the modules. It is not all just reading! Those who need visuals to help them learn will find those videos very helpful.
I take all my classes online, so this means I can go to school in California and still live and maintain my full-time job in Texas. I love that I can get my degree all while living my life in another state. The only downside is paying out of state tuition, but to have an education that I can trust isn't that worth it? The Academy of Art University is always willing to answer any questions I have whether it be in the class when I can just email my professor, or ask the office when I can set up an appointment that fits my schedule and theirs. They also send you emails when they have something going on around campus, and being online they will let you know when it is still something you can participate in from home!
I attend the Academy of Art University online education program. I love the easy access available to the students. Everything a student needs is available to them at all times! From financial aid information to technical help, everything needed is available twenty four hours a day. The only thing I would change is the availability of some of the professors. Many times I needed help from a professor, and I'd have to wait 3-5 days at a time, which would force me to put off my assignments!
