augmented reality

implementation is taught Good introduction to the world of AR, let you begin to know the concepts and provide clues on what is the next step on our journey to learn how to develop Augmented reality experiences good overview of ARCORE The best lecture to understand the core of ARCore Great Intro!

GREAT COURSE,this course is very helpful to get the basic knowledge needed to start in the augmented reality field looking for more hands on projects I learned some things about AR that I didn't know, and most importantly, I got a really good idea of what it takes to make an AR app, and what programs I will need to accomplish this.

This course was very informative and useful for all the beginners who want to explore the world of Augmented Reality.

good G This is a perfect course for someone wanting to learn about the basics of Augmented Reality.

Excellent introduction to Augmented Reality but not to ARCore.

Most lectures are less than a minute long and gets directly to the point, and I feel that I have gotten a great idea of the theory and basics of Augmented Reality.The only problem is the lecturer in module 4, who speaks very quickly with a heavy accent.

Thank you :) Very helpful, loads of resources and definitions and a great intro into augmented reality.

That being said, I'm glad I took this course and I know feel like I have a better understanding of Augmented Reality, although I recognize I have an immense amount to learn before I can work in the field.

A very useful introductory course that serves as a starting point on Augmented Reality and ARCore.

Its a great intro into AR.. time to take some classes on Unity and ARCore :) Nice overview of the augmented reality.

This course I really recommend it if you want to start from scratch understanding how Augmented reality works.

I personally liked this course, who wants to learn basics of Augmented Reality this course will be helpful.

high level

level Provides a very high level overview.

I would recommend A little too high level, but great for beginners who didn't know anything about ARcore.

This is ONLY useful for complete newbies to the field: it doesn't give any knowledge on how to program stuff or on the mathematics behind the extended reality, but it just presents on a high level which are the tools used (or recommended by Google).

I think it checked all the basics required to understand ARCore in general at a high level.

more technical

I expect more technical content Muy buen curso de introducción a la AR, el área de oportunidad está un poco en el desarrollar la parte aplicada.

I was hoping it would get more technical and tutorial-like, instead of reiterating terminology from the first week again in the third, but I am still thankful for this course.

I wish I've taken this course before diving into more technical ones.

I'm ready to dive into more technical overviews now.
