Aims The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the main concepts and practical issues in constructing and understanding Virtual Environments, and how people respond to a VE experience. Given the background of the course teachers, the focus on the technical side will be more on the visual aspects of VEs. A central theme of the course will also be that the understanding of VEs can be best understood through the concepts of presence and shared presence.
Learning Outcomes By the end of this course students should have an understanding of the core issues in VEs and have constructed a VE using a shared VE system.
