For 3 years I have taught my Graphic Design 1 and 2 classes using an easy-to-employ, gamified format. All you need are: a website, a clear set of rules, a blog, and a some mastery challenges to keep it compelling (and get better work).

Count me as a big fan of the Design Dojo, and its Sensei, Kevin McMahon. A true classroom of the future!

Plus I love the black belt challenge. I confess to having developed a severe case of benign envy for your skills, Sensei. :)
