Blender for Beginners (Full Online)

This basic course offers an introduction to the popular open-source 3D modeling and animation software, Blender. Throughout the course, students learn fundamental concepts and techniques to create 3D models, characters, environments, and animations. The curriculum typically covers topics such as navigating the Blender interface, basic modeling tools and workflows, character design and rigging, environment creation, texturing, lighting, and animation principles. By the end of the course, participants gain a solid understanding of Blender’s capabilities and are equipped with the skills to start creating their own 3D projects. 

Method of Teaching

This course provides live instructor-led demonstration and discussions, student engagement and hands-on exercises using Zoom, Google Classroom and Blender (Blender Downloadable Link). When necessary, students will complete exercises after-class to be submitted before the next one.

Blender, a versatile 3D software, runs on Windows, macOS, and Linux. It needs a multi-core CPU, 8GB+ RAM, and ideally a dedicated GPU for smooth performance. A display with 1280×768 resolution is recommended, and SSDs are preferred for faster loading. A three-button mouse or pen/tablet is best for navigation. Always check specific version requirements for optimal performance.
