Application Deadline: Tuesday 6 April

The Unity Game Engine can be used to create three-dimensional, two-dimensional, virtual reality, and augmented reality games, environments, simulations and other experiences.

This short course is aimed at people who want to begin creating their own immersive environments and offers an introduction to using Unity to those with little or no previous experience. The course will give participants access to immersive technology skills that can be integrated into their own projects and business ventures.

Across four sessions we will cover:

  • The basics of navigating the Unity Game Engine interface
  • Using primitive objects to layout a scene
  • Adding a player and walking around your environment
  • Adding prebuilt assets from the asset store
  • Adding lighting to your scene
  • Adding materials to your scene
  • Exporting your scene to HTML5
  • Uploading your environment to a web server.
