OCAD U Online Courses In Partnership With DVSA


In partnership with OCAD U, Dundas Valley School of Art 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 for the OCAD U online courses must be done through DVSA.

OCAD U Online courses are delivered through a series of tutorials and related assignments which students may complete at their own pace on OCAD’s Learning Management System, Canvas. On the course dates, the instructor will conduct a live seminar from 7-8 pm. The content of live seminars will be archived and available for students to access at other times. The instructor is also 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 OCAD U one week before the course start date. If you do not receive your log in credentials, please check your spam folder and contact OCAD U. Returning students can use the same credentials from previous courses.
