Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
The course content will be customized directly to the learner’s interests and current skills, both in the Unity editor and through programming in C# scripts. Topics that could be covered include (but are not limited to): 

Creating control systems for 1st person or 3rd person
Scene and level transitions
Implementing animations
Lighting and level design
Special effects and post processing
Creating game management systems (such as managing inventory, user interface, etc)
Creating reusable components  
Scene and performance optimization
How to plan for a project before beginning
Using Unity navigation systems to handle basic AI
Debugging and balancing gameplay
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Developing games in Unity often requires the use of outside assets (3D models, images, sounds, etc). We will focus on using free assets from the Unity Asset Store, but there are also paid assets on the Asset Store. Additionally, some content on the Unity Asset store may be considered inappropriate for younger learners.
