About this course

Create your virtual reality experiences by creating the world and all the objects in it. You will learn techniques like materials and texturing that make your objects appear realistic.

You will also learn about audio techniques to create a great soundscape to add to your visual experience. The course will also focus on the particular requirements of VR, including pitfalls and performance issues: making sure your environment runs fast enough in VR.

You will use the professional game and VR engine, Unity3D. Unity is one of the most used game engine and is a relatively easy, but fully featured, introduction to 3D development.

The course will culminate in a project in which you will create your own VR scene. VR development is something you can only learn by doing it yourself, so working on your project will be the best way to learn.
