"Kadenze went live on June 16, launching an online learning platform purpose-built for the arts and creative technologies. Based in Valencia, Calif., the start-up pairs world-class instructors with a digital platform specifically created to support an online arts-based curriculum." according to California Institute of the Arts.
Open to learners anywhere in the world, Kadenze launches in partnership with creative arts departments at leading universities and institutions, including: Princeton University, Stanford University, California Institute of the Arts, UCLA, California College of the Arts, Emily Carr University of Art and Design and Goldsmiths University of London. (Full list below.)
“We could not be more proud of Kadenze,” said CalArts President Steven Lavine. “With faculty member and co-founder Ajay Kapur serving as CEO and 60% of the staff composed of alumni, this dynamic new enterprise brilliantly exemplifies the power of CalArts experimental ethos.”
Kadenze fills a void in the online education world, as there have been no arts-focused platforms that deliver a comprehensive educational experience or assess students’ work properly. Kadenze’s technology platform enables media-rich lessons and assignment submissions, including algorithms to analyze and measure students’ performance and progress as they complete courses.
Kadenze allows students to choose the option that best fits their needs:
- Free: Enroll in any available course, watch video lectures and participate in forums;
- Premium: Submit assignments, receive grades, build and share portfolio and resume, receive discounts in Kadenze bookstore, take courses for credit, and more;
- Credit: Take courses for college credit;
