    दरअसल हम भारतीयों को मुफ्त की चीजें पाना बहुत पसंद होता है। जैसा कि आप मेरे जैसे और अन्य लोगों को मुफ्त में पढ़ा रहे हैं। कहीं न कहीं यह बहुत महत्वपूर्ण लगता है क्योंकि कभी-कभी हमारे पास निवेश करने के लिए पैसे नहीं होते हैं या कोई नया कौशल सीखने के लिए खर्च नहीं कर सकते हैं। आप बहुत अच्छा काम कर रहे हैं यह कहने की बात नहीं है आप इसे बहुत अच्छे से जानते हैं फिर भी मैं आपका आभार व्यक्त करना चाहता हूँ धन्यवाद।

    मुझे कार्टून फिल्मे बनाना अच्छा लगता है पर अभी तक मै कुछ भी नहीं जनता हूँ कि एनिमेटेड फिल्म कैसे बनाई जाती है। भगवान की कृपा से आपके माध्यम से सीखने को मिलेगा तो मेरा ये सपना भी साकार हो जायेगा। मुझे बड़ी बेसब्री से उस दिन का इंतज़ार है जिस मैं इसे सीखना शुरू करूँगा।

    I really enjoyed the online course. I thought it was well planned and layed out, easy for me to follow. The work load(h.w. & test)was just enough, so i could finish everything with enough time, learn about the topics and not feel over loaded and rushed....

    The Maya software which the instructor used it's different from the current version the students who enrolled are advised to download and so there's so much trouble in doing the same what he teaches and no sort of assistance provided when asked about the same in discussion about the problem faced regarding the interface which ultimately made me feel annoyed and decided not to go with the course after 2 weeks of learning

    But I should appreciate the instructor, he's good at teaching.

    The placements are not generally a thing for BA students. So, there were only few students who got placed in previous batches. But, the administration has made a call to improve that and thus established a separate placement cell for our college other than the university placement committee. They have been striving hard in last couple of months to call the companies. Even Zee News hired a student from our course recently.
