Understand VR Technology and Create Your Own Virtual World.

Summer 2017

This course provides an overview of virtual reality, as well as a series of lab classes how to quickly and effectively create virtual reality experiences. This course introduces you to the history of virtual reality, variety of application domains of VR and their impacts, human factors, and major aspects for VR user experiences. After the class, you are expected to understand essential elements constituting virtual reality, how the VR technologies can be used for public benefits, and be able to create your imagination into sample VR applications.

For the class, I have developed a lab curriculum based on GoogleVR and Unity3D including a supporting unitypackages to enable Coding-Free VR interactive app design and development.
