Online Learning for Students

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. ArtCenter faculty use DotED to share course documents and resources, and to create assignments that students can submit online.

Accessing DotED

All courses that you are enrolled are listed on your Inside ArtCenter dashboard. Each DotED course can be accessed by clicking on the blue arrow next to the course title on your Inside Dashboard. Please contact your instructor if no arrow is visible. You can also access your DotED courses by logging into DotED directly at https://doted.artcenter.edu.

Doted Courses

Each DotED course is divided into 15 sections, an introduction and 14 other sections that correspond to the ArtCenter academic calendar. Your instructor will post the course syllabus, links to Zoom meetings and assignments, as well as information on assignments and other course requirements. The DotED course is the hub for all of your online course activity at ArtCenter.

Submitting writing assignments via DotED

Your instructor may ask you to use DotED to submit assignments. There are two types of assignments that can be submitted, a DotED assignment and a Turnitin Assignment. The primary difference between the two types is that a Turnitin assignment checks the content against the internet and several other databases for plagiarism (non-original work) while a traditional DotED assignment does not.

Using Zoom with DotED

Zoom is a platform designed for remote learning and meetings. Weekly course sessions will be taught live online according to the date and time listed on your class schedule. Please visit http://citl.artcenter.edu/dtl/zoom-prepping-students/ for information on setting up and using Zoom.

Connecting your LinkedIn Account
