Digital Design is about designing in digital space so that the created contents can be displayed and seen on a digital device. With the availability of high computing power, designers are able to quickly create designs in digital space prior to actual deployment. In this course, you will learn the fundamental concepts of a wide variety of digital design technology and you will have the opportunity to create your own digital designs and animate them as well. The course focuses on creating 3D objects using a computer-aided design package, creating real life physical simulations and then combining the two techniques to create rendered animations. It will also introduce the virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications. This course allows you to get hands-on experience on different design tools so that the various outputs can be combined in a systematic way. So get started to experience this excitement of creating your own designs now whether it be for continuing education or as a hobby.
An excellent online course offered by edX: how it works
edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practise the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course.
edX offers certificates of successful completion and some courses are credit-eligible. Whether or not a college or university offers credit for an online course is within the sole discretion of the school. edX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). edX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).
