CG Cookie's Blender Teaching Guide

So either you’re a Blender fanatic that has been given the green light to start your Blender class at school or work, or you drew the short straw and have to teach it next week with no idea what you’re doing. :) 

Don’t worry.  Either way, this guide is here to help you become familiar with Blender, its community and tips for teaching it to large groups. 

We’ll be taking a 30,000ft view to give you foundations to craft your class, or simply gain a better understanding of Blender for yourself. 

Learning 3D can be incredibly overwhelming, yet highly rewarding for those that stick with it. As with anything, it’s a skill that can be learned through repetition, taking things slow and managing expectations.
