Learning Blender and all that it has to offer? Then you might be interested in the over 100 video tutorials and 25 pdf tutorials that Neal Hirsig has released to the public. That's not a typo... there are really 104 video tutorials. From naming objects to layer animation, one minute tutorials to longer discussions, Neal certainly covers a range of basic Blender functionality.
From the thread:
I have been using Blender as the primary software for my Tufts University 3D Design class for a number of years. All of the class material is now online here. The course contains weekly learning units consisting of over a hundred video tutorials and some 25 PDF tutorials. All associated files including completed tutorials can be downloaded.
The video tutorials are in streaming Real Media format and require broadband or DSL access. The site also includes 4 course projects and examples of prior student work. All of the material on this site is open and free to be used by anyone. I invite any of your comments.
Another way to access this material to to use the Blackboard course site that I use for class. You can access this here Userword: blender Password: blender. There is a link to the course site listed under "My Courses" on the home page displayed after login. I will use this site for the fall semester. The Blackboard site is not available daily from 1:0AM - 2:00AM Eastern Standard Time.
I would like to personally thank Neal for creating and posting these. It is certainly one of the best Blender video tutorial resources out there, and with Neal as the instructor I can only imagine how well his students understand Blender after his class.
