A few months ago OSTraining did a crowdfunding campaign. Their goal was to develop Drupal 8 introductory videos that would then be made available for free on Youtube. With the funding goal exceeded, the result was a great series of videos. We packaged them into a learning path for Drupal 8 site builders and extracted some learning objectives to make it easy to track your progress with the materials.

Drupal 8 has been heralded as the site builder release, as it introduces a better authoring experience, powerful customizations, more authoring features in core and a commitment to accessibility, all of which empower site builders to boldly go where no site builder has gone before.

When we were thinking about the best content for helping site builders get acquainted with Drupal 8, we immediately thought of OSTraining’s online video course, sponsored by Acquia.

To make the learning process easier, we’ve added explicit learning objectives for many of the videos, and turned them into a learning path on Outlearn to provide a starter package that helps you stay on track. Get started now with the Drupal 8 Beginner Class!

What is Outlearn?
Outlearn is a training platform that makes it easy to curate and combine public training materials into a learning path. As the curators for Drupal 8, we used the platform to build learning paths that collect the best content about Drupal 8 that is out there, and ordered them so that by following the learning path, you can easily become more and more experienced with D8. We verified the quality of each video and added tasks to help your learning process.
