First example of an EOB Esports Academy Course.
Learn game design with our partners Aardman. We travel to Bristol and spend time working on assignments set by Aardman’s Interactive Department. We then develop these ideas with Skype support from Aardman.
You will be learning how esports and digital companies operate and the different job roles that you might want to pursue.
You will document your expirience within a magazine and learn how to create engaging editorial with profesional journalists. And oh yes, their are formal qualifications to gain too!
A second example of an EOB Esports Academy Course.
Using GDevelope you will create your our 2D game after a games design workshop with the support of EOB trainers.
Then we look into 3D Modelling. 3D modelling is the use of computers to create images and graphics that look three dimensional; game designers will use this process to create games. Using software like Maya you will develop your 3D model which will get printed too.
We will have a trip to Nominet to learn about ‘the internet of things’. There will be a master class on technological advances across the web; you will then write an article about your findings, which will be published within The Enemy of Boredoms digital magazine, Oh and you’ll get trained by professional journalists too!
“I wanted to get involved with the project because it advertised something completely new for those that want to get into the creative industry as well as providing an insight to esports and making some valuable connections”.
“I especially loved the team building throughout the project as a whole, because team communication and efficiency is imperative to any organisation or company. Furthermore I got to meet some industry professionals which provided a great insight in how to get a foothold in the creative industry.”
“Before the EOB Esports Course, I was just sitting at home, on my own and playing video games. I’ve stayed in touch with my course mates and I’ve now got a full time job.”
“The EOB Esports Academy gave me such a great experience; I grew as a person and the best thing of all I ended up in a career working for Clock Ltd, a digital agency that makes websites for the likes of Riot Games!”
