  • Graphic Design, Online Schools.

    Looking into getting a degree online from Ai (Art Institute) or Academy of Art online. I was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with these schools and if they are accredited and looked at , just like any other school. Possibly gonna be Graphic design major or Photography.

    Thanks for any or all input!

          First off there are two major types of accreditation that you'll need to look into. But at one point in time I was considering an online school. I had requested some information from the art institute and a consult via phone. I had a conversation with someone who claimed to be in charge of admissions, but couldn't shake the feeling I was talking to a used car dealer. Very pressuring and almost desperate to get you enrolled into the school. This was a major turnoff for me, and for the next several weeks they would blow up my phone, calling at least 3 times a day trying to talk me into enrolling. Even if the school is worthwhile I couldn't take any academic institution seriously that seems to want to enroll as many people as possible.

            I don't take any graphic design program seriously that doesn't require a portfolio review of prospective students.

              I had the same experience.

                I understand that when you're new to this, it feels like you must take whatever work you can get, and swallow all the crap that comes with it. But it's actually just the opposite. This is a toxic relationship....

                Also just to address your OP more specifically, Twitter vs a forum.

                On twitter I can message someone I know and ask for a crit or fresh set of eyes. On a forum I can post that same message,...

                It's another social media app that allows you to connect with people, in some ways it's easier than others. Its one more way to market yourself, and people have gotten plenty of work off twitter alone....
