First class all the way. What set Digital Media Academy apart from the rest was that they offered courses at world-renowned universities that were taught by industry-leading professionals. Every instructor had at least one assistant to ensure every question would get answered. The staff was very professional, down-to-earth, and just fun to be around. It was a learning environment I had yet to experience.
The digital adventure I had partaken in was simply amazing, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a great digital learning experience! Every student learned on equipment that was the latest and greatest. And I have to add that the computers were generously upgraded in the RAM area as well! Let’s just say that I had no problems with lag-times or the like. The computers had the most up-to-date versions of every program a student and professional could want.
I speak for myself when I say that it was a “technerds” dream come true! I really can’t wait to do it again. I think this time around I might have to give DMA on the Sea a try! I signed up for three classes in summer 2008: 1) Introduction to Web Design with Adobe CS3 – Dreamweaver, Flash & Photoshop; 2) Advanced Web Design Techniques with Adobe CS3; and 3) Creating a Website with Flash and Actionscript. The skill set I honed in those three courses made me much more competitive in the work force. I can say that I am more successful today after spending three weeks at DMA than the semesters I spent at my local community college. Not only were all my questions answered, but the DMA instructors made sure to guide me in the right path after completing my courses.
Even though it’s been nearly six months since I attended DMA, I still am in touch with my instructors, asking them questions and getting answers. Like I said: First class all the way.
