Two of VR’s big names join forces to offer a free course that progresses beyond basic development skills, available on Unity Learn.
For learners who feel like they already have a solid foundation for developing VR experiences, a new free online course, presented jointly by Oculus and Unity, purports to offer “intermediate” skills to deepen learners’ development capabilities.
The course, which was produced by Scout House and is available on Unity Learn, focuses on helping aspiring creators “Design, Develop, and Deploy for VR,” with an emphasis on game programming, user experience (UX), and publishing.
[Disclosure: Scout House is a content studio owned by the same parent company that owns VRScout, of which the author is an Editor, but had no involvement in the project.]
Though gaming is explicitly listed as a focus, the skills are also applicable to art, entertainment, and enterprise applications.
12 subject matter experts from Oculus and Unity provide insight across 11 modules, amounting to approximately 23 hours of content.
Upon completion of the course, learners can submit their respective “vertical slice” for feedback from Oculus.
Course includes the following units:
The course is available now on Unity Learn. For learners looking to acquire beginner-level skills, Unity Learn also offers an intro to Unity course and an intro to VR tutorial.
