Objectives of the course
This course aims to provide students an overview of techniques and methodologies used to design and develop 3D interactive virtual worlds. Algorithms to describe and animate 3D objects will be presented; moreover, programming techniques based on OpenGL will be illustrated to practical implement theoretical elements described during lectures. Basic notions of virtual reality over the Internet will be taught, too.
Elementi di Informatica, Tecniche e linguaggi di programmazione, Informatica grafica e multimedialitÓ.
- Introduction to virtual reality and virtual worlds design
