CG Cookie's Pavla Karon talks to several teachers about their use of Blender in their classes.
Less than a decade ago, only a few would have predicted that Blender is eventually going to make its way to classrooms as a tool of choice for teaching students how to create in 3D. It certainly wasn’t love at first click for Tony; “About 8 years ago when I first looked at Blender, it wasn’t at a stage where I could use it in a class yet; it was simply too confusing and not user-friendly.” But that was about to change: “3 years ago, I came across Blender again and saw how far it has evolved. I decided to give it a shot and use it with my students instead of Autodesk software.”
Tony isn’t alone: more and more teachers from K-12 to university level are introducing Blender to their classrooms...
Have you ever taught using Blender, or maybe you were lucky enough to join a class where you could use is? Please share your stories!
