You have questions. We have answers.

How are these courses different from “DMA Online” courses released a few years ago?
In 2019, we built these courses with professional curriculum developers and instructional designers for each specific age group. The courses available here are all new and completely different from the old DMA Online courses.

How were the courses developed?
Digital Media Academy started by asking what we could do to help students gain an understanding of technology education fundamentals. From there, we went through a curriculum development process that included selecting cutting edge topics; creating the courses; testing the content with students and educators; and working with educators to ensure the content works for different ages and knowledge levels.

How long will the courses be available?
Digital Media Academy’s STEAM Learning Lab will always be available. Over time courses may be enhanced, added, or removed. You will have access to the courses or bundle you purchased for 12 months from the original day of purchase. You may purchase access after that but prices may differ.

How many hours of curriculum are included in one course?
Courses provide up to 15 hours of instructional value, depending on a student’s experience, interest, and ability to grasp the material covered.

Will more courses be added?
Yes! While more than a ten courses are available for your child’s age group today there are more available now and more may be added in the future. As your child grows up they will have the opportunity to access additional courses.

How are the courses delivered?
Courses are available online anytime from anywhere on any connected device. Courses are self-paced and students are encouraged to complete the curriculum at a pace that suits their learning style and lifestyle.

What is the learning format of the courses?
Digital Media Academy’s STEAM Learning Lab uses a learning format based on students completing courses that are divided into modules. Each module covers a specific topic and contains a series of lessons, assignments, critical thinking questions, and/or interactive videos. There are also quizzes, meant to quickly help students review and retain what they’ve learned, and challenges where students actually create, produce and/or complete a task to practice their new skill. Students can earn badges for each achievement that they complete.

What ages are eligible to use the Online Learning Center?
Currently, there are customized STEAM Learning Labs for ages 7-9, 9-12, and 13-18+. Our 30+ courses have been designed for students from kindergarten through graduation.

What does it cost?
$399 USD. This includes unlimited access to an age appropriate STEAM Learning Lab for 12 months from the date of purchase. After 12 months, you will no longer be able to access the STEAM Learning Lab and will receive email based communications about continued access. See terms & conditions for full details.

Is this a subscription?
No. This is not a subscription. There are no automatic recurring charges. This is an offer to purchase unlimited access to an age appropriate STEAM Learning Lab for 12 months.

How do I purchase access to an Online Learning Center?
Simply “Add to Cart” above or click the mobile purchase button and check out. If you’d prefer you can call our in house guest services team at 866.656.3342. They would be happy to help answer your questions and set up your account. You can also reach us at info@digitalmediaacademy.org for assistance.
