cgSource contains a wealth of materials of value to Computer Graphics and Digital Arts educators and professionals. Unlike CGEMS, materials in this section are not formally peer reviewed. Instead, cgSource materials are publicly reviewed and rated by the community at large (implementation of commenting and rating is in the works).
See the project white paper for details.
Materials ranging from teaching materials and single topic presentations to entire courses.
