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.
Week 1: Computer Aided Design Fundamentals of computer aided design. Developing 3D digital models of various shapes.
Week 2: Computer Animation Basics Rigging a 3D model and creating simple computer animations using key framing and particle systems.
Week 3: Color Theory Matching colors for specific applications. Using Processing software to generate physical simulations of moving objects.
Week 4: Rendering Setting up a virtual scene with different 3D geometries, material properties, and lighting conditions.
I really enjoyed the online course. I thought it was well planned and layed out, easy for me to follow. The work load(h.w. & test)was just enough, so i could finish everything with enough time, learn about the topics and not feel over loaded and rushed....

Overall I really like this class because all lectures, assignments, and tests are straight forward. A couple things I dislike about the class are that there should be more opportunities for extra credit and it would be awesome if the final was an objective essay about what we have learned in this class or what we like about the class. I believe that I have more knowledge about ocean, weather, and marine lives and hopefully, I can use them in real life.
The course was everything you said it would be, fun but a lot of work. And it was! I enjoyed the web-labs because they were a lot of fun and easy to understand. And the answers were usually somewhere in the text. I also liked the assignments that required us to get online. Sometimes articles aside from the reading book gave me a better idea and understanding of the subject for that week. What I disliked was the short essay question because I found it difficult to explain certain concepts without introducing in some way, Ideas from the course notes or book (keeping in mind plagiarism). I never expected to learn so much from an online class; I now see the ocean life in a whole new way. I know I could have done better, but in the end I learned that an online class could be as much work or more than a regular class. However, I still enjoyed it very much.
I really enjoyed this class and the format it was presented in. For me, I learn and retain much more through an online class due to the fact you can do the course as an ¡§open book.¡¨ This really makes me search for the answer and in return, I retain more information. I found it relaxing to be able to turn the work on the assignments and test at my leisure and when I had the time. I liked the fact you were very clear that more internet research may be necessary for some assignments To be honest, there is nothing that I disliked about the course. I will definitely be taking another online course from you!

I enjoyed this online course. It was well-organized and it is easy for me to follow the lectures.
Digital Design provides employees with a better understanding of the extent of their achievements, areas of work and communities (self-assessment). It gives them more control over their professional lives. Employees can easily find completed work or the groups to which they belong.
I love the progression of the course. From the more general to more technical on digital design. I also like the information that has been taught in this course. As a person who did not take formal education on design, and working as a graphic designer, I think that this online course is very worth the time and effort!

It really help me a lot to know deeply about this course. Now I can say that I can apply this at work. This will be the start of my new career as I took this course. I hope that there will be another set or continuation of this topic. Thank you so much

Some parts of the course were very challenging for me, but I have really enjoyed the course and I like the result. I have learned a couple of useful programs, and I understand better now how people create video games, animations, AR, VR etc. The only problem was, that I could not navigate from the main menu to every lab, I have almost oversaw a couple of labs! I could see the labs only if I pressed the button "next" being in the previous part. Apart from that it is a very good course!
