With so many people stuck at home due to the quarantines around the COVID-19 virus, Unity technologies have released Unity Learn Premium for free to developers for the next few months. Unity Learn Premium is a great source of Unity tutorials, courses, lessons and projects and even included non-Unity related content on topics such as Max and Maya. You can learn more about Unity Learn in our prior hands-on video.
Details from the State of Unity 2020:
As the world continues to change, we are committed to helping all of you learn new skills and capabilities that can help bring your vision to life. We are pleased to announce that we are giving everyone complimentary access to Unity Learn Premium starting today through June 20. Just log in to access live sessions with Unity experts and more than 350 hours of bite-sized tutorials, hands-on projects, and in-depth courses for game developers and any creator that can benefit from the power of real-time technology. This includes everything from Game Mechanic Design Fundamentals to Getting Started with Post-Processing Stack for VR. Additionally, we are delivering Create with Code Live, live virtual classes taught by Unity experts for students, educators, and anyone who wants to learn how to code, starting on Monday, March 23.
Even if you are an existing Premium subscriber, Unity have you covered there, having released the following email:
We are pausing your monthly payments for three months, from March 19 until June 20. If your payment date falls within this period, you will not be charged for Unity Learn Premium. You don’t need to do anything – we’ll take care of it.
We are adding three months of access to your Unity Learn Premium subscription. For example, if your subscription is scheduled to renew on October 1, 2020, it will now renew on January 1, 2021. No action is required on your part; we’ll automatically shift your renewal date.
30-day Trial Subscribers
If you are currently in a trial period and want to continue using Learn Premium past this trial period, we will waive your monthly payments through June 20.
