Title:

    Integrating Web 3D into 3D Animation Curricula

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    3D curriculum, once focused on modeling, rendering and animation, now includes web 3D and interactivity. But what options exist for new courses in web 3D? How in-depth are some web 3D tools and their learning curves? Should the curriculum expand to make 3D artists into programmers? What considerations should we give to the end-users’ experience in viewing an online web 3D portfolio? This session examines how these issues are being addressed in teaching “Interactive Web 3D Media” at UC Berkeley, UC Irvine and UCLA Digital Arts and Entertainment Studies Extension. The session also provides hands-on experience with various tools and technologies.
