Welcome to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh – Online Division’s Online Class Resources Page and to the Plus Program! The Art Institute created the Plus Program to provide its campus-based students with the option and flexibility to take online courses alongside traditional courses. While you are enrolled in an online course, you will have access to tools on this site to help familiarize you with the online classroom and position you to be successful. Take a few minutes to get acquainted with the tutorials, student guides and tutoring services available to you.

If you want to learn, we welcome you to join us for a review of the online classroom right from your computer. During this time, you will learn the features and functionality of the course, where to go for help, what to do when you have questions, where to find available resources, and much more. Please select a day and time from the list and follow the link to register.

Whether you are new or returning to the online course, it is important that you spend time acclimating to the online environment. You can now view online video tutorials for a specific topic or start from beginning and watch each of the videos in order to be better prepared.
