Our online courses are led by experienced instructors and feature weekly sessions that allow participants to acquire new skills that will complement their studies or professional work.

At our institute, we believe in fairness and inclusivity. To that end, we offer three different pricing categories for all our courses. We understand that the economic value of our course may differ depending on the participant's circumstances, and we urge everyone to make a responsible and respectful decision when choosing their ticket.

We recognize that this knowledge can be highly lucrative in the advertising, branding, event, or science sectors. However, we also understand that it may not necessarily translate to financial gain in small independent projects without a commercial background. Regardless of your situation, we encourage you to select the ticket that aligns with your needs and circumstances:


– Student & Hobbyist

You are currently studying or want to learn TouchDesigner for personal reasons that are not related to your source of income.

– Professional

You are working professionally as a self employed or freelancing person and want to learn TouchDesigner to advance your career and win new customers by expanding your skills.

Maybe you work as an employee in another field, but want to qualify yourself for new challenges, yet your company is not supporting you on this path.


You are employed with or are running a company that will leverage the new skills acquired in their work with clients. You want to further qualify your employees and support them on their learning path.


  • *Corporate Responsibility

When you purchase a Company seat, you not only provide access for yourself or your employee, but you also support a participant from a developing country or someone in financial need who otherwise couldn’t afford the course. Each company ticket includes a scholarship for someone to benefit from this opportunity.



Due to popular demand we decided to offer the opportunity for participants to earn certification based on the knowledge gained from our Beginners Class. Under the guidance of our instructors, participants will work on an assignment over the course of three sessions of personal feedback and consultation, culminating in the creation of an interactive program inspired by real-life scenarios.

Upon successful completion of the assignment and meeting the established criteria, The NODE Institute will certify that the participant is capable of working with TouchDesigner on an intermediate level. This certification confirms that the individual is qualified to find solutions within the framework of the software, and is a testament to their newly acquired skills.
