How does an online course work at MCAD?

Most online courses are asynchronous, meaning that there are no set class meeting times. 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 an online course is roughly 8-10 hours per week, whether the course is being taken for credit or noncredit.
