SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Autodesk announced the second part of its free, two-part Udacity course that teaches participants the basic principles of 3D computer graphics. This news comes on the heels of the company’s notable first jump into the massive open online course (MOOC) delivery platform, which was widely received – with more than 22,000 people from 128 countries enrolling since its March launch. Building upon this success, Autodesk forecasts an even higher turnout for the second half of the Udacity course.
Eric Haines, the course creator/instructor and senior engineer at Autodesk hopes to utilize Udacity’s 'on demand' platform to further Autodesk’s commitment to providing students and professionals with the tools they need to build the skills required in today’s workforce.
Here’s what the course offers to participants:-A ’free’ opportunity to learn the basic principles of 3D graphics, with a focus on real-time rendering and animation
-An engaging mix of YouTube lectures, interactive 3D demos, questions and in-browser programming exercises
-A self-paced course equivalent to 10 weeks of college work, with the flexibility to skip lessons or come back at a later time
-The 3D demos, available here, show students how they can apply what they learn from the lectures to real-world problems
