How our online class works

Students unfamiliar with distance learning can ask themselves: “How do online classes work?” Classes are held online as in the classroom, just students do not need to spend time on the road. In addition, they have no problems, study on the course, which is not in the nearest college or even in their country.

Study course materials

As in a regular classroom, your Graphic Design Course begins by viewing a slide presentation or by watching a video leсture or by listening to a lecture and / or reading lecture materials in an Internet textbook.
Students should also be prepared for a list of reading materials for Each Month of the course. To test the level of knowledge of thous materials students regularly perform online tests and quizzes.

What time do I need to study online?

Depending on the course, students may need to listen a course lectures and do some assessments every second day, or only once or twice a week. As in any other class, students should take notes in their notebooks as they study the learning material.

Course assessments

Students should complete most of the assessments at home, at a convenient time.  Students will have to complete a certain number of tasks for each month of the course. Most courses combine shorter assessments with larger long-term assessments (projects) to be completed at the end of the Month or semester.


Participation in the discussion.

Nearly all online colleges require students to take part in weekly or by-weekly webinars or discussions about the next course topic or home assessments with the rest of the class, course instructor or both. This may mean posting discussions on the online discussion board or participating in group chats on a specific date and time.

Students can ask any questions to their instructor or discuss a complex topic with students in their group. This may vary depending on the course and the specifics of a particular course topic. Listening to audio lectures, browsing course materials, viewing video lectures, doing homework and talking with students in your group is not that different from a traditional lesson.
