DotED is the name of ArtCenter’s customized LMS (learning management system). Every course that is offered at ArtCenter has an online counterpart in the DotED system, and is accessible via single sign-on from the Inside ArtCenter dashboard. DotED is a robust system that can be utilized as a simple file and resource repository for students, or as a hybrid teaching environment complete with assignments, quizzes, and active learning activities to encourage self-reflection and peer assessment. DTL services include bringing pedagogical principles into the blended classroom experience to help you create an engaging and inclusive learning experience for all ArtCenter students.
