Aug 18, 2023

Our team has been buzzing with excitement to bring you a fresh wave of updates that we believe will make your experience even more enjoyable and seamless. 🐝🍯

👾 Unreal Engine Courses by the Epic Games Education Team

We are collaborating with Epic Games to bring an educational opportunity of epic proportions. We will be providing access to six new Unreal Engine courses originally created by the Epic Games education team. These courses aim to simplify concepts related to interactive 3D for newcomers using Unreal Engine, thereby unlocking game development and skills for other emerging industries for children and learners of all ages. 

We will gradually introduce the following courses to you and announce them on your dashboard;

  • 🎮 Hour of Code: Unreal Engine - Create Your First 3D Game

  • 🚀 Build a Virtual Rube Goldberg Machine in Unreal Engine

  • 🤖 Get Started Creating Robots in Unreal Engine

  • 🎬 Unreal Futures: Careers in Animation

  • 👗 Unreal Futures: Careers in Fashion

  • 📣 Unreal Futures: Careers in Advertising

🏀Teams Updates

We've decided to streamline the platform by discontinuing the Teams functionality. Teams and classrooms function in a very similar, If not identical, manner. This means that you can now utilize classrooms for a wide range of purposes according to your needs. We aim to enhance your experience by consolidating everything under one entity, facilitating the seamless integration of new features.

Organizations still using the old Teams functionality can continue to do so during a transitional period, gradually adapting to the changes.
