How does an online course work at MCAD?
Most online courses are primarily or fully asynchronous, meaning that there are no set class meeting times. Some classes do include a weekly or bi-weekly synchronous meeting. Instead, courses are project-based, with 2 to 3 deadlines per week, and students can choose a time and place that works best for them to complete the work. Course activities may include readings; video demonstrations and tutorials; online discussions; projects; and critiques. The workload of a 1 credit course is roughly 8-10 hours per week, whether the course is being taken for credit or noncredit. While this course is mostly asynchronous, there will be a scheduled group meeting every week onThursdays from 6-7 p.m. (CST).
