Online courses, have you tried one?


Apparently I'm just not cut out for "regular" studying, working and earning money is more my kind of thing. Luckily, that doesn't rule out learning stuff on my own, or with a little help, and I'm currently checking out different online courses considering wether to spend the money or not.

So, has anyone here tried any online courses? There are several interesting courses here at the cgsociety, and I've also been looking at Bobby Chiu's Are there any other schools you wanna recommend? Any kind of (short, 4-14 weeks) 2Dclasses is what I'm after, but if you've had a 3D course you can still tell a little bit about how it was, was the feedback any good, just in general thoughts on online coursing.

All feedback is highly appreciated!

devils and angels and stuff :P

Hey man,

I don't know of many art classes, but If your after maths and programming, check out some of the links in my sig. Coursera might have some stuff that interest you.

It depends upon what you want to study, what kind of equipment you have, and what your motivation is. I've seen great stuff come from students of online schools, and I've seen horrid stuff come from students of traditional brick and mortar schools. You need to be motivated more than a traditional student if you want to succeed with online education.

I don't know if I can recommend the classes that I'll be teaching in January, due to forum policy. If not, please delete this post

Online training?

Digital Tutors and FXPHD have some decent online training. I'd check them out.

Hey man,

Most of the major universities provide content and money to Coursera in exchange for information for research purposes. So basically the whole thing is a big research project into on-line learning.
