This paper demonstrates successful online studio courses where digital photographs of actual student drawings replaced seated critiques. Online studio courses excelled in discussion board “critiques”, where students experienced freedom from face-to-face stress. The Wimba classroom in Blackboard was used for online office hours, and synchronous small group critiques. This video enabled tool facilitates live drawing demonstrations and audio communication, conveying a synergy between students and instructors that contributes to motivation and collaboration.
