EteRNA University

From Eterna Wiki


EteRNA University was an initiative where (primarily) Eterna players educated other Eterna players on topics relevant to Eterna. The curriculum of past classes is included on this Wiki page.

The official EteRNA University is currently in hiatus. However, teaching sessions are present during Eternacon and the Town Halls hosted by the Eterna Players Association.

Welcome to EteRNA University!


Date: [ you are welcome for us join us]




Classes are scheduled according to teacher availability. A popular time is on Wednesdays at 6pm EST, when there is no Dev Chat. 

We always appreciate volunteers who wish to teach a class - if you have something to share, you are welcome to schedule a class any time.

Subject matter does not need to be Eterna related, we all like to have fun here and learn new things. So whatever you have knowledge in, you are welcome to share!

Feel free to PM player LFP6, or post an idea on the discussion page to coordinate teaching a class. 

Thank you!


Curriculum is archived here in the wiki for reference. If additional formatting is required, you may link to a Google doc. 

Authors retain full rights to the curriculum. Inclusion of curriculum in the wiki preserves teaching efforts and makes classes available to players once the class is complete!
