[Bf-education] education platform

Hello Mr. Dounas,

I have been using Blender for years, going through each upgrade as they come out.
During those years I have met many people over sixty who have been looking for work, and
I would like to offer 3D modeling training to them and disabled, using Blender as the software.

I also have training in Maya, AutoCAD, and Revit.  I started my, self-taught, training using 3D Sutdio, before it was Max.
Now I have ompleted my Associates of Applied Sciences in Architectural CAD Technology.  But that was after completing three terms at the CAD Institute.
I have been applying for CAD and Architectural work for seven years with no hires, except for a month at an electrical company creating 3D models of conduit runs.
Which got me to thinking how many elderly people are discriminated against just because of their age.
So I want to start a school to teach Blender and also hire the trained students as 3D modelers at the school.
The business of 3D modeling would be to create prototypes for any industry, including creating it own feature movies.

Needless to say, I am seeking funding for all this.  So, until I can find the funding I am waiting to get started.
I have been training a few people on the side, but they are just too busy to make it a career.

Sincerest Regards

Roger Sexton

Yes, this is the one. If you did not get answers or people showing interest in your platform, try asking for specific help. Also you could try various other blender forums. The idea is not bad, it's just a huge undertaking.

All the bestTheo

I was wondering, is this not the place to talk about education for Blender 3D?

Hi all,
In 2015 and 2016 I participated in a project with Nick van den Broek, on building a learning environment for blender: Blender Education (blendereducation.com) . Unfortunately this project died in 2016. I preserved the domain name and now I want to revive this project.
I have a pretty good (but basic) plan about what, how and when. But I'd like to hear the idea's of others too.
My idea (or the idea of the project) is to provide an E-learning platform, used to facilitate Blender tutors/teachers. It is focused on learning by video courses, with extra services like forum, chat and collaboration features, surveys and quiz's. Blender education should become the first place to go, if you want to learn about Blender. Users can find tutorials/courses on Blender Education itself, or references to tutorials/courses on other websites or educational services.
I'd like to collaborate with other parties on this platform. The possibilty to login with your blender ID for example, or import playlists from youtube as a course with different lessons. Integration with social media will also be feature. When the platform becomes more mature, i want to add the possibity to provide paid content.
I did some searches on the internet, but couldn't find a platform like this specific for blender. Does anyone know if something like this exists? or maybe is in the making without me knowing about it? Is there anything I could do to ensure I create something that is from great value for the Blender community?
I'd like to hear your thoughts!Kind regards,Mark _______________________________________________
