In all, there are 4,000 course to enroll on. The huge menu of topics includes VFX, CAD, HTML, Photoshop, Maya, Nuke and V-Ray. There's also a huge selection of interactive sessions exploring programming languages.
Mergers and acquisitions
Through acquisition, the deal brings together several libraries of digital lessons. These include buyouts of Smartere, Digital-Tutors, and, most recently, Code School.
The deal valued Code School at $36 million. If you're a member of Code School, and worried the move might mean changes to the site's service, don't worry. In a blog, the Code School team explained that's business as usual.
