Do you want to learn 3D graphics to design portfolio?  This class will teach you about the basic principles of 3D computer graphics: meshes, transforms, cameras, materials, lighting, and animation. By the end of this class you will know enough to make an animated 3D demo program that runs in a web browser, while also understanding the basic principles of how realistic computer images are generated. You will also have a portfolio of small interactive programs.

Assessment

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.

Certification

Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49. Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:
