The fact that i can learn at my own pace and time. I've always wanted to learn animation, but i can't afford the fee at the University. So studying online is a good start for me.

Just starting with it and already I am creating things I never thought possible. Technology can even make a guy who has issues drawing stick figures look like he's been doing it for years
