Virtual and augmented reality have captured the imaginations of people around the world, and today our team is excited to announce a new partnership with the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies to offer VR and AR development courses. The collaboration marks the first time courses for developing immersive technology will be offered through a post-secondary institution in Ontario.
The new UofT SCS XR Development with Unity program will offer Circuit Stream’s XR courses as part of the School of Continuing Studies. Throughout the course, students will gain practical experience with the Unity 3D platform by building seven XR projects.
When completed, students will earn a Certificate of Completion from the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies, an XR Developer digital badge from Circuit Stream, and have the opportunity to earn an Associate Certificate from Unity.
The partnership offers students three separate courses:
