[Updated March 30, 6:30 p.m. EDT]

CURRENT STATUS: All classes are IN SESSION and enrolling classes will proceed ON SCHEDULE. Classes are currently being delivered REMOTELY until further notice, with APRIL 30 as our current target for a return to in-person instruction. See below for more info.
 
How are we delivering the same level of education? Immersive Instructor Sean Reid answers on this YouTube video.
 

 
Original notice:
As of Tuesday, March 17th, all DigitalCrafts classes will be delivered remotely via Zoom conferencing software. We will return to in-person classes as soon as possible, with April 10th as our current target for a return to relative normalcy. I hope it's sooner, it could be later, but we'll keep this status page updated with the latest information.
 
While this decision was difficult, it's based on a number of factors, including the closing of all public schools in our communities, the urging of local governments, and the approval of our governing agencies in each state.
 
These are trying times, and we certainly understand that this may cause disappointment for some of our students. The safety of our students and staff is paramount, and our intentions are to keep you safe, and do our part towards "flattening the curve" by practicing social distancing and postponing public gatherings, including Demo Days. 
 
We are very confident that with a little patience and understanding, you'll find that remote learning is an effective avenue for instruction. You still have the best instructors in the business. You still have a full staff supporting you before, during, and after class. We've successfully delivered remote learning programs before, and a fully remote bootcamp was already in the works before this crisis. We'll be back in the classrooms as soon as possible, churning through the curriculum without missing a beat.
 
In searching for something positive from this event, it is accelerating DigitalCrafts' progress towards offering a remote-only program for students across the country. This project is something that has been in the works for some months now, and we look forward to launching a fully remote program in late Fall / early Winter of this year. Stay tuned for more updates :)

All the best,
