My name is Brian Rocz. I am currently a graduate student at the University of Colorado Denver where I am studying Information and Learning Technologies in the Instructional Design program. I have a BA in English, which I have prominently displayed somewhere in my file cabinet.
I started creating tutorials using Blender (a powerful and easy to use open-source 3D modeling and animation suite) because I wanted to share what I have learned and also to give back to the Blender community which has been instrumental in my own learning.
This led me to my current degree goals–to learn beyond my own experience to design and implement e-learning instruction. I believe instruction should be engaging, relevant and easy to follow. The main thing is that there is something useful to take away in the end, whether it is new bit of information, or just a new way to think about something.
My interest in 3D art grew out of a traditional art background which I admit was left uncultivated and even less practiced. I have been using Blender for a number of years and am largely self-taught. But I do have to give credit to those who gladly share their knowledge for others to learn, without which I wouldn’t have progressed as far as I have.
My aim here is to provide learning resources and assets that enable others to learn, be creative and progress onward into their individual futures.
