Brian Scarbeau Insights from a seasoned Computer Science Trainer

Big announcement at the GDC in San Francisco today.  Microsoft has launched a community driven service that will let amateur creators build and distribute games via XBOX live.

I was amazed to find out that XNA had been downloaded 800,000 times and there are more than 400 universities worldwide that are using the package. There are not that many high schools teaching XNA. I'd like to see more XNA training for faculty so that high school teachers would feel comfortable teaching it.

Last summer, I took an online class with 3dbuzz and the learning gave me the confidence to teach my students. This news will give my students great motivation to share their game at the end of the semester.
