EVE University Opens Classes to Public

by on 2013.07.06, under News

Effective July 15, EVE University‘s general educational classes and guest lectures will be open to everyone in the EVE Online community. Membership in the UNI will no longer be required to attend the corporation’s ongoing series of classes and lectures about EVE Online. They will be open to anyone who wants to participate on the UNI’s public Mumble server, without obligation or cost.

“This is something we have wanted to do for a long time,” said EVE University’s Director of Education, Bairfhionn Isu. “It is EVE University’s mission to provide free education, training and learning resources to everyone in the EVE Online community. Our UNIWiki, for example, has been open to the public since its inception, and gets over 2 million page views per month. UNI YouTube videos on EVE Online topics, produced by our professors, have always been freely available. It seems only right that our live classes and expert guest lectures also be accessible to anyone interested in playing EVE Online, not just to our student members.”

EVE University provides a wide variety of classes and lectures on EVE Online topics, including basic game mechanics, ship orientations and fitting, player vs. player (PvP) techniques, missioning, mining, exploration, trading, industry, politics, lore, metagame issues, and EVE-related support tools. The UNI also features regular guest lectures by various EVE personalities and experts in different aspects of the game. Over the last six months, the UNI has held over 250 classes and lectures for more than 12,000 participants.

The schedule of EVE University classes and lectures is available to the public at http://calendar.eveuniversity.org/, and is updated daily.

To attend an EVE University class, interested participants only have to register on the UNI’s public Mumble server: http://eveuni.org/publicmumble, and log in on the UNI public Mumble channel at the appointed class time. There are no other obligations – players will be free to join as many or as few UNI classes as they wish. There are no fees to join any UNI class or lecture.

The UNI public Mumble server has been used successfully to host the CSM Town Hall meetings and special guest lectures, and has sufficient capacity to accommodate hundreds of simultaneous users.

“EVE University now has the infrastructure and resources to make our entire curriculum available to everyone in the EVE community,” said Azmodeus Valar, CEO of the UNI. “We are excited about making our classes, and the good work of our teaching team, available to anyone who wants to learn more about our game.”

EVE University, primary member of the Ivy League Alliance, is a neutral training institution in the massive multi-player online game, EVE Online. Founded in March of 2004 by Morning Maniac, EVE University trains new pilots in all aspects of EVE Online, allowing them to be fully capable of making a name for themselves in New Eden.
