Teaching online

Hey everyone!
Was just wondering, is there a ready to use platform online where anyone can come and teach a workshop? Something similar to what Animation mentor or Gnomon uses?

Maybe there's some some established platform for artists which I've just missed?

Thank you!

Maybe Adobe Connect? I read once it was very easy to use for eLearning.

It would be cool to have something like that. Something where you can have a tutor as well doing things with you live. So if you run into a problem they can actually login to your computer and see what is on your screen and show you stuff.

Like if I was working on a model and it wasn't coming out right like in the face the Tutor could come in and show you a method they use to get that part right. That would be great!

The CGTalk classes are basically just a private webforum with some videos posted. A forum, some private Vimeo videos, and Google Hangouts if you want live classes would work fine.

I believe that CGS uses a modified version of Moodle. Moodle is used by a lot of colleges. Basic setup is free, but there are options that you have to pay for.

These days it's grown to a customization of a platform to deliver contents and discussion + Adobe Connect for the more Webinar and video answers options.

Old format was working perfectly fine too, I did two workshops like that with nobody complaining about the environment or delivery.

Ultimately, if you don't need a virtual classroom, a forum and a vimeo Pro account are both easily obtainable and perfectly suited, if you need a virtual classroom and/or webinars then bolt Connect on.

Camtasia has some broadcasting solutions too, and so does youtube if you don't need interaction.

All in all it's more about the contents and how you manage the curriculum, all the tools are cheaply obtainable these days and don't require too much technical knowledge to set up if you're a one-man operation and don't need the extent of sales, presales and the cataglogue of CGWorkshops.

You can try Virtual Campus:

When they were starting it didn't seem like much. But it looks kinda top-end now.

Livestream is pretty great if you just wanna get on and share your screen with the world...

Anthony Jones streams there all the time, and it works really, really well! He usually starts with a lecture and then does a demo, and will take questions from the chatbox as they come up.

Feng Zhu and Scott Robertson each made really good use of YouTube as a learning platform as well.

Google hangouts might be worth looking at if it's a small scale affair.

God! I never thought there are so many different tools. I've made a list from what everyone suggested and it's quite a list to go through.

Thanks, guys!
