Gnomon School | Online Courses in Visual Effects & 3D Animation for Film & Games | Learn Maya, Max & More Over the past year, we've been working hard at developing a brand new online training platform for Gnomon. While we have been providing online training for years through both the school and the Gnomon Workshop, we wanted to create a new experience for our students. For over fifteen years, Gnomon has trained thousands of artists on our campus in Hollywood. Through the live and interactive experience of taking classes with other artists from leading industry professionals, students not only learn the techniques necessary to create production quality work… but also create friendships with likeminded people. "Gnomon's new online platform has been in development for over a year and is truly the closest experience possible to taking a course on campus." While creating a new experience for online training was step one, clearly the most important next step would be the curriculum. We hope that Gnomon's new online platform becomes a valuable resource for artists looking to level up their skills.

Blog | Education for Everyone by Nadiyka Gerbish Every now and then we all have some wonderful insights. Or receive short letters that bring us some revolutionary news (that is how I discovered iversity). But as time passes, we tend to forget those small, but hugely important things. And all we need then is just an ordinary, everyday miracle of inspiration met around the corner. Just a magic kick in the pants, as one of my friends puts it. Photo by Nadiyka Gerbish Yesterday I went to my favorite café to have my daily dose of hot cocoa. So yesterday, when I came to the café, there was that girl. I didn’t mean to peer, I promise, but somehow I did. “Hey, what course are you taking?” She looked at me and smiled back. So we sat there, sipping our cold drinks (though they were supposed to be hot) and chatting. There were two guys at the next table who stopped their conversation and were listening to ours, looking rather sarcastic. “Girl, wanna study?

Find OpenCourseWare with OCW Search Girls Who Code European Neanderthals were on the verge of extinction even before the arrival of modern humans New findings from an international team of researchers show that most Neanderthals in Europe died off around 50,000 years ago. The previously held view of a Europe populated by a stable Neanderthal population for hundreds of thousands of years up until modern humans arrived must therefore be revised. This new perspective on the Neanderthals comes from a study of ancient DNA published February 25 in Molecular Biology and Evolution. The results indicate that most Neanderthals in Europe died off as early as 50,000 years ago. After that, a small group of Neanderthals recolonised central and western Europe, where they survived for another 10,000 years before modern humans entered the picture. The study is the result of an international project led by Swedish and Spanish researchers in Uppsala, Stockholm and Madrid. The results presented in the study are based entirely on severely degraded DNA, and the analyses have therefore required both advanced laboratory and computational methods.
