The course is looking great!
Have you thought of doing a tutorial series about

@rapppc: I thought about including it, but ended deciding against it. While it's an amazing tool, I don't feel confident enough with it myself yet to ensure good lessons. Maybe in the future though, once I've had more time with it. :)

Coming from the outside it is difficult to understand where to start with the course. clicking the blender motion graphics logo lands you here: https://cloud.blender.org/p/motion-graphics/ and confuses the user. also, the navigation bar was closed so there was no way for me to get to the actual course start.

@shul: Hmm, that's odd. I'll keep an eye on it, thanks for letting me know.

@shul: I think I know what the problem is; I was very confused as well, so I opened it up in another browser (Firefox) where it all looked good. The difference was the navigation column on the left side; which when it's closed makes it very hard to navigate (!) and understand anything. At the bottom of the page, to the left, there is a little arrow ( << ) you can click on; this opens up the navigation bar, and problem should be solved. I suggest this bar should be open upon entering site, but can be closed if needed after entering the site ...

Yeah I had the same problem. I would of thought clicking the browse button would let me see the course videos but it just takes you to the splash page unless you click the tiny little nav button at the bottom. Seems unhelpful.

@Tristan Garner: Thanks for the feedback. I'll let the devs know when I get a chance, they're always happy to hear how things can be improved.

Great videos. Learned a lot. Nice to see, so much can be achieved with a few object (and a lot of modifiers).
