Our industry needs quickly-changeable courses, says private training college

Global private training institution Qantm has said that Universities may not be the best way of teaching games knowledge because of the slowness at which they can update their courses.

"Mainstream universities have a very inherent problem with updating their curriculum, because they have to go through updated validation processes and such that can take up to three years," said Qantm's marketing man Nic Oliver in our first Education Spotlight, uploaded to the Develop website today.

"But our course structure, the way we run things, means that if something new is released tomorrow we could have it in our course in a matter of weeks."

The piece covers Qantm's course offerings, as well as finding out what it's doing to make sure its courses are relevant to the games industry, and also reveals how the college is taking its courses into schools in order to promote learning about digital media creation from an early age.
