Khan Academy

A few weeks ago, my neighbor and friend, whose a truck driver by trade, introduced me to the Khan Academy. Then my own dean introduces Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) to me, and Khan Academy was one of them. Now my school is considering creating or aligning ourselves with one of these MOOC websites.

If you don't know about Khan Academy, then get to know it! It's amazing. It's really putting everything I do on a daily basis, in 3D work, into perspective. My career started off with fine arts, but I was always strong in math. I suspect others that choose the computer 3d animation field are similar to me. Strong in math, went to arts school, but never really had motivation or the right "humanized" teacher for learning math and it's applications.

I know this may seem off the Softimage subject, but I believe learning math is essential to being successful in our field. So, for the artist's out there... Imagine, at the very least, understanding what is happening in the ICE tree, not just from the artist's perspective, but from the mathematician's and engineer's perspective.

Anyway, go make an account and learn all you can, then come back to 3D and apply it.

Khan Academy is awesome. It's probably one of the coolest ways to learn anything.
