I was looking at this the other day - there isnt a heap of ma courses in Australia, and those that do crop up generally focus on audio. RMIT in melbourne have had max courses in the past, but i dont believe they run regularly/ anymore - http://www1.rmit.edu.au/courses/038516
Ive often thought about starting a course/ tuition for complete beginners (thats about as much as i could help with), but am unsure as to the size of the market and whether it would be worthwhile.
Wondering if you made any traction on finding a suitable avenue for learning jitter/Max in Australia. I'm about to start my degree at UoN and want to use Max for my major projects but have no idea where to even start.
