COFA Online ~enrich is a dynamic and innovative initiative designed to address the needs and interests of public, professionals, and corporate bodies nationally and internationally, primarily in the area of visual arts and design.
The ~enrich concept extends beyond the traditional university environment into public, community and industry sectors offering a suite of relevant and contemporary online courses. Designed to provide university level education that is focussed not simply on skills acquisition, ~enrich courses are characterised by their theoretical components that are developed and taught by academics and industry professionals.
Delivered via COFA's Omnium™ software the ~enrich user-experience is of a seamless integration of quality academic content and an easy- to-use digital interface operable from any location. You may also choose to participate in ~enrich programs of higher rigor to achieve accreditation for your online studies. Developed with a global perspective the ~enrich program is a unique concept in contemporary visual art and design education driven by a vision of collaborative learning for all who wish to access it.
