"The purpose of this message is simply to let the Blender community know about a project we are developing at my University. We recently uploaded a video in YouTube developed using free software (Blender and Gimp) to be used as a help for the teaching of some concepts to students of Physics and Electronic Engineering.
The video is available only in Spanish, and it is not intended to be self-explanatory (we did not include a voice on the soundtrack, as in documentaries), but to be complemented with class notes. It explains the concept of Density of States, a widely used concept in Solid State Physics (and maybe some Blender users are also familiar with it. Now we are planning to develop other videos trying to help the students to better understand the concepts we teach at the University.
In this video we just did some simple modeling and texturing, and simple camera animations. We also used Blender for the video edition. But in future videos we plan to use more features of Blender. After a year of exploring Blender capabilities, my opinion is that Blender is excellent to produce these kind of teaching videos."
