Graphic Design – A Crash Course in Computer Science
3D Graphics: Crash Course Computer Science is a first person game based around 3D modeling and rendering. You play the role of an “intellectual” who has earned a reputation as the best 3D artist in town. To earn your reputation as a great artist, you’ll need to complete challenges and puzzles that are set at various landscapes, and “crash” into the scene of your choice. The scenes are very stylized and the whole point of the game is to create the most realistic looking models and the best detailing of the environment possible.
This is the basic premise behind this game: computer science. All the courses are based around real life scientific principles. The concepts used are applicable to real life, as well as the application of science to video games. Some of the more advanced courses can even be graphed out, giving you a visual example or two as to what is being discussed.
The classes themselves can range from easy tutorials that cover topics such as lighting, color theory, shadowing and reflections, to more difficult courses such as particle physics, artificial intelligence, human anatomy and real time rendering. All of these topics are taught using a science theme that guides everything from classroom discussions to actual projects. Once you complete the course, you’ll be given a grade, depending on your performance. Some courses are longer than others, but each comes with a time limit. Some will allow you to redo the assignment later, if you’re unable to meet the requirements.
The Crash Course Computer Science course does have some benefits over other similar courses. One is that it is more interactive. In previous courses, the student was content to just sit and do the work. There was little interaction, if any, and the assignments often felt more like a homework assignment than an actual part of the study plan. However, the student is now able to interact with his or her classmates through email, instant messaging and even forums. This allows the students to discuss assignments and brainstorm solutions to problems, something that was absent in previous offerings.
Another benefit of this course is the instructors
There are two main instructors who have taken the time to master the art of computer science, allowing them to easily provide students with step-by-step instructions. These instructors have been teaching graphics design for a long time and have a wealth of knowledge on the subject. Their expertise comes through the materials they use, which are all based on a solid understanding of physics. They not only teach the basics, but also go into greater detail discussing advanced topics.
A final benefit is the structure of the course. Unlike many computer science classes, the graphics design class does not have a set starting topic. Rather, the instructor works one class away from the next, going over a wide variety of topics in an engaging manner. The student is encouraged to ask questions as he or she questions the content. The class is not overly strict and provides a safe environment for learning. This allows the student to explore new areas and hassles without having to worry about failing a class.
One thing students do not expect when taking a course like this is computer technology
By the end of the session, most people are familiar with some of the key components of computers. They also understand that programs exist to aid in the creation of graphics. However, by the end of the program, most people are at ease with computer technology and understand how to operate most of the common programs that they will run.
In short, a graphic design class can be fun and provide students with a valuable education. Teachers can customize the program to meet the needs of their students and are able to modify the course to meet the requirements of their employers. This flexibility makes it easy for teachers to provide top quality instruction. Computer graphics is quickly becoming an essential part of everyday life and the information provided by the graphic design program will only grow and improve.
