PAST STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

I enjoyed the easy-going attitude in OFI and you can always ask for help or guidance as everyone is so helpful and kind. This course helped me discover what I want to do next in education. I highly recommend this course as it gives you skills and knowledge of what it would be like to make a game.
