This course is being run from my iTunes U Course. You can find all the resources that go along with this video on the iTunes U course here:
I will also be running this course from the blog and have attached the PDF of the resources (the iTunes U Course also has an interactive, Multi-Touch Book) to this post.
Welcome to my Introduction to Blender course.
Please note that this course has been designed for my Year 9 Digital Media Class and tie into what we are doing in the classroom.
The videos I am creating for each lesson will have a laid back and fun approach. I will be learning this program as the students do!
This course will be presented so you to can follow it and have access to all the same resources as those in the classroom. I will also endeavour to upload any recordings of my class presentations as an extra resource for each lesson.
As I only have a short timeframe to run this class and my students have never used the program before we will be focusing on a few of the components that make up Blender. Students will be developing skills over the course of the lessons to start and complete a final project for the course.
Every lesson will have a set learning intention and outcome for students to achieve. This will be detailed on each lesson post.
Each lesson will be made up of a recording by me and extra resources to complement the video.
There will be two ways to access these resources.
- iTunes U: By downloading the Multi-Touch Book from the materials in each post. This Book contains the video as well as all the extra resources in one place. This the easiest option and how I will be presenting the resources to my students, however it does require an iPad.
- Blog & iTunes U: By downloading the video from the materials in each post and also the separate PDF file that contains the extra resources. This option is for everyone and can be accessed on any device. You can also annotate the video in realtime on any iOS device.
Please choose what works best for you!
