The Blender course has received fantastic response so far, and around 2500 participants have registered to the course. Since this was a self pace mode, the participants have been able to follow their schedules and timings! To share some more data, 290 have already cleared the course, and more participants are on the way to clear it!!. This is in tune with the global passing percentage of 9-11% of the total registration. However, we expect a raise in the passing percentage by September 30th (closing date of the course), since there are institutions where many students have enrolled for the course, and are going to attempt the quizzes after 15th.
I have come to know that there are 10th standard students, working professionals, students from varied streams (eg: engineering, science, commerce, arts, fine arts, architecture and many more), housewives, pair/group of friends, siblings, and even couples who have registered!!!
We have been flooded with assignment submissions, and moreover many are top of the class!! Kudos to the efforts of the participants, who are adding value to the entire course through their sincere efforts. The attached screenshot shows the interaction on the course discussion forum, and the quality of the submissions. Further, there are requests coming up from various organizations (academic institutions as well as professional companies) who want to offer internships to the deserving students..! In short we are experiencing an exciting phase, in this course, regarding the skill based education in India, for animation.
I will be sharing more such experiences in the forthcoming posts..but this post is for an important announcement: Registration for the Basic 3D animation using Blender course is ENDING on 15th September, and the course will end on 30th September. Which means that anyone who wants to register for the course has just 3 days left!!!! Therefore, hurry up and visit: www.iitbombayx.in to register first, and later enroll to the course.
Please write a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org in case of a query. We would be happy to help!
