Interactive Computer Graphics introduces various interactive tools for visual problem solving. Students will learn how to design and implement such tools for your own problems.
About the course
Computer graphics can be a powerful tool for supporting visual problem solving, and interactivity plays a central role in harnessing the users' creativity. This course will introduce students to various interactive tools developed in computer graphics research field with their design rationales and algorithms.
Week 1: Graphical User Interfaces
Week 2: 2D Drawings and Animation
Week 3: 3D Geometric Modeling
Week 4: Deformation and Animation
Week 5: Fabrication
Week 6: Computer-aided Design
Week 7: Real World Interaction
The course provides two learning tracks: Liberal Arts Track and Computer Science Track.
- Liberal Arts Track: Students just need to be able to watch videos and answer quizzes online. No background knowledge is expected.
- Computer Science Track: Students are required to complete assignments and a final project, which assume some experience and knowledge in computer science and programming.
Each week, approximately 5 videos ranging from 10 to 15 minutes each will be provided. After watching the videos, the students will work on exercise according to the learning track students select.
