HOW IT WORKS
Our online Learning Management System (LMS) allows students the freedom to study animation outside of our main campus in Hollywood. The LMS is a secure web-based multimedia platform that is accessible 24 hours a day. Students use this system to view class content, receive and submit project work and assignments, communicate with instructors, classmates and more.
