Basic Design Principles


In partnership with OCAD U, DVSA offers a selection of online courses each term. Up to 8 credits from the OCAD U Online courses can be applied towards completion of DVSA’s Foundational Certificate Program. Registration must be done through DVSA. Students will receive their course log in information and network credentials by email directly from OCAD U one week before the course start date.

Online courses are delivered through a series of tutorials and related assignments which students may complete at their own pace on our Learning Management System, Canvas. The instructor is available throughout the course time period for questions and discussions. Students will have access to Canvas one week before the course begins and two weeks after the course is complete. Please note that new students will receive their log in information and network credentials by email directly from our IT department one week before the course start date. If you do not receive your log in credentials, please check your spam folder and contact our office. Returning students can use the same credentials from previous courses.
