Learn the tools and techniques to develop your own professional VR app in Unity 3D.

Course Fee: Free
Certificate Cost: 99.00 USD

Course Description

This course is made available through the eLearnAfrica and Edx partnership.

Build professional VR apps using Unity 3D, a powerful cross-platform 3D engine that provides a user-friendly development environment. In this course, part of the Virtual Reality Professional Certificate program, you will learn how to build a VR engine from the ground up, so you fully understand the entire rendering pipeline from 3D model to pixels in the VR display. We will also cover motion prediction, 3D stereo, lens distortion, time warp and other optimizations for a fluid, realistic VR experience.


You will also learn how to implement the most important VR interaction concepts such as selection, manipulation, travel, wayfinding, menus, and text input in Unity.


Unity is a GUI based programming environment, in which much of the programming can be done through dialog windows. It also supports scripts written in C#, which as we will show will allow for more complex VR functionality.


What you learn about VR programming in this course will help you write VR games, architectural walkthroughs, engineering simulations, 3D data viewers, medical training applications, and many more..

Certificate cost may vary. You will be redirected to the host page for cost and payment options.

The University of California, San Diego

The University of California, San Diego (UC San Diego) is a student-centered, research-focused, service-oriented public institution that provides opportunity for all. This young university has made its mark regionally, nationally and internationally. Named in the top 15 research universities worldwide, UC San Diego fosters a culture of collaboration that sparks discoveries, advances society and drives economic impact.

 

The campus offers a wide range of education and research opportunities—from engineering, medicine and oceanography to the arts and humanities, and physical and social sciences—lending itself naturally to interdisciplinary learning. Our students, who learn from Nobel laureates, MacArthur Fellows and National Academy members, are as committed to public service as they are to their studies. Regularly listed among the top 10 public universities in the nation, for the fifth consecutive year UC San Diego has also been ranked first based on research, civic engagement and social mobility.

 

We are unique among other University of California campuses—UC San Diego offers undergraduates the “small college” concept patterned after those at Cambridge and Oxford universities. Each of the six undergraduate colleges has its own residence halls, student services, traditions and even graduation ceremonies. While the undergraduate remains part of one university, they also develop a sense of identity within the smaller family of their chosen college.

 

UC San Diego is one campus with multiple pillars of excellence, a leading public university that is transforming lives, shaping new disciplines and advancing the frontiers of knowledge.

This institution is available on eLearnAfrica through partnership with Edx.
