Course overview

In this course, you’ll learn what virtual reality is, and how exactly it’s used. You’ll discover how to create your own virtual reality world by coding with JavaScript. In this VR world, you’ll be able to create, colour, and move your own objects.


In this course, you would focus on thinking about the “what” of the VR experience rather than “how” to implement it.


You will use a light-weight approach to implementation which can literally run out of a browser window. At the end of this course, learners should be able to design, test and implement basic VR experiences on their own.
