List of online courses!

Web sites for learning . . .

  • Game Institute
  • This is the place to check out if you want to create you own games in C++ and Unity. They have courses in learning C++, create Game Art (e.g. with Blender). They also have courses where you build your own first person zombie shooter and racing game.
  • Udemy
  • Udemy offers a wide ranging list of course where you can pick up many for around $10 when they go on sale. The courses range from software development (Web Development, Mobile Apps, Programming Languages, Game Development, Databases, Softwre Testing, Software Engineering, etc,) business, IT & Software, Office Productivity, Design, etc. I can highly recommend the courses by Chris DeLeon.
  • SitePoint
  • This website is totally and elegantly focused on web design and technologies. They offer courses, books and articles on a wide ranging topics from HTML & CSS, JavaScript, PHP, Design & UX, Mobile, WordPress and Workflow. I have never read just beautiful and well crafted books.
  • Oracle Learning Library
  • I am primarily a Java Developer so getting on the oracle web site to obtain the latest JDK is quite common. What is not so well-known is the fact that Oracle has many free on-line courses. There are many free courses (if you can find them!) from IoT to Java8. I am currently working on Develop Java Embedded Applications Using a Raspberry Pi
  • Udacity
  • The web site offers many courses and for paying customers certificaions and nanodegrees. I found that the courses work better if you a) have a lot of time to study b) have a group of friends or a solid online study group. I have found myself dissatisfied with the depth of information shared when covering a topic. I like to read material, work on a lot of exercises and get solid feedback - none of which applies for any of the courses I have taken on this web site.
  • Coursera
  • This website offers many online specializations ranging from Data Science, Machine Learning, and Game Design. I completed two courses "The Data Scientist's Toolbox" and "R Programming." I felt I needed more time with Statisitics (which I never took in college) and R. I truly enjoyes the courses - I was able to complete with high grades but again I feel like I need more time than allowed to really know the material.
  • 3DBuzz
  • This is one of the earliest and best online game course site I ever worked on. It has many courses for free involving Unity and C++. My first course with this web site was a free Unity Course. The course contained may video lectures, all assets and we a delight to follow since the presenters were engaging, entertaining and funny. Check out the site there are many free courses that demonstrate the teaching style and presentation: * 2D Game Art for Non-Artists * Creating 2D Games in Unity 4.5
  • StackSkills
  • I have somehow managed to purchase many courses (usually via discount - I always wait for a sale on BGR) that I need to get on with such as * Unity Game Analytics * Modeling + Texturing in Blender 3D * HTML5 Mobile Game Development with Phaser and much more. The web site has much more courses from SQL, Learn Java from Scratch (Stone River eLearning). I need to dedicate some more time actually completing the courses I paid for.
  • edX
  • This website features courses from universities around the world - Harvard, Berkeley, Boston, etc. The courses range from Introduction to Computer Science, HTML5 Introduction, English Grammer and Style, College Algebra, etc. All the courses are free but you have the option of paying to otbain certification after the completion of the course.
  • MIT Open Courseware
  • It seems every course they offer at MIT is available online for free.
    Note: After composing this list I have decided to start and complete a Udacity course on Gradle, and a Construct coure on Stackskills....I can only recommend that you too spend some time learning something new.
