Hi, this is an interesting idea, but how does the online learning system compare to a live Design Studio environment? Is this course accredited with any international recognition or certification?

Hi!Thanks for reply!



how does the online learning system compare to a live Design Studio environment?


>We use ChatWork. http://www.chatwork.com/

This system is very easy to use.

Trainees will learn techniques for sketch and styling design which are required for car designing during 12 sessions in the first half and 12 sessions in the other half with textbooks and videos. After each session, trainees are required to submit their work regarding to assignments. Trainees are expected to improve their designing skills by correction and advices from Mr. Kurihara and other professional car designers from NORI INC.


Is this course accredited with any international recognition or certification?


>Not yet.



Best regards.
