    Finland is known for sauna, Sibelius, sisu... and for good inexpensive universities. In this context, I would like to present an interesting find:
    You learn something about the basics of game design and you get 10 ECTS = 5 US credits from an accredited university for not even $200. Oh, why does a day not have 36 hours?!

    Best regards,

    Yes, it is indeed. But a few years ago, there was a spate of (mostly) foreign-owned uncredentialed schools that used a loophole. We had quite a time with these. I remember SABI University, Firelake University and Preston University, Finland as examples.

    This game-design one looks like a good find, whether you just want to learn a bit, or actually have a way to use the ECTS.

    Probably the same reason the Euro and the Dollar and the Pound don't have 250 cents / p. It's like a safety-valve. In a 36-hour day people would go broke buying all the distance-ed bargains.
