Most frequent questions and answers

The majority of DDAS teachers were once students, now pursuing their Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in Graphic Design, Animation or Game Art. So their knowledge already surpasses the curriculum. Additionally, we personally interview, hire and train each instructor.

Our online classes are taught using a combination of live online Q&A class meetings and other resources including online documents, e-critiques, and downloadable files for students to use as a resource. Students will attend the online course using Teachable, where they will view their weekly assignments, watch guided tutorials and download content. Students are expected to complete reading and homework assignments, as well as their projects every Friday. Constant communication with the instructor and among students is made available through email and once at the end of the course via Zoom.
