Academic Testimonials

I learned so much from design3/Unity 3D training videos. It enabled me to successfully run my Game art class. It is the most resourceful training site I have experienced. Many Thanks!Chun Lu, DigiPen Institute of Technology
Design 3 has been really helpful with teaching UDK this semester and I have found that the students are watching all of the videos and it is helping them tremendously with learning the skills needed. I am looking forward to using Design3 for our SGD 165 Character Development class in this coming spring as well. I have already looked at the 3ds Max videos and they will suit our class nicely.Brandon Crews, Wake Tech CC
Beyond the quality of the Design3 courseware titles, I was very impressed by the ease of implementing the material in my course. I was able to simply print simple instructions on my syllabus under the Required Software Training section and include a link to the the program. I have worked with many other software training and textbook publishers and your system most closely functions like a traditional textbook requirement.Professor John Craig Freeman, Emerson College
From an educator's standpoint, the Unity-Design3 educational software is the most significant development in video gaming instruction. This tool is so powerful, I am convinced that any student motivated enough can take this easy to use tool and design and build professional level video games...I have tried all of the major tools available and can honestly say "THIS IS IT!" Professor Daniel Rease, St. Petersburg College
