Fundamentals of Augmented Reality (AR)

This course is a survey on the emerging media of Augmented Reality (AR). AR is a new form of computer-human interaction that enhances the world around us and merges digital and physical experiences. AR is a pioneering form of media utilized in the design, medical, and entertainment industries. AR allows us to communicate in a new form of media that adds layers of interaction, real-time information, and a unique perspective to our physical world. 

The goal of this course is for students to understand the possibilities of computer interaction through digital media applications. Through guided tutorials, group projects, and individual assignments, students will build an essential skill set for creating AR experiences and understanding the possible applications of the medium. After taking “Fundamentals of AR,” students will be versed in a medium that combines 3D modeling, computer animation, interaction design, and immersive storytelling.
