This course will focus on learning about current virtual reality and augmented reality hardware and software, and create interactive environments and user interfaces that make effective use of them.
is very important, but not mandatory. Part of your grade will be based
on your in-class participation (i.e. asking good questions, making good
comments) so please take that into account.
I will occasionally send out emails to the class using your UIC email address so please make sure that you are checking for email from that account every day or two.
UIC Wi-Fi should work in the classroom.
I will be putting all of my notes on the web, however these notes should not be considered official until the day of class. If I make any major changes to a page afterwards, then I will announce it in class, but note that at the bottom of each page is a modification date so you should be able to tell when the notes were last modified. I try to ensure that the notes on the web accurately reflect the lecture, but its what is discussed in class that counts, not what's written in the notes.
"Those who are absent are always wrong." - African proverb
The best way to learn about VR and AR is to make VR and AR applications. There will be several projects, a presentation on a VR or AR application or piece of hardware of your choice, some homework and in-class assignments, and points for class participation.
Graduate students will have additional requirements for their projects commensurate with the additional course credit they receive.
Individual grades on the projects will be based on the quality of the work turned in and on the reviews that each student receives from his/her team members.
"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand" - Chinese proverb
