Interactive Computer Graphics

University of Tokyo via Coursera


Computer graphics can be a powerful tool for supporting visual problem solving, and interactivity plays a central role in harnessing the users' creativity. This course will introduce various interactive tools developed in computer graphics research field with their design rationales and algorithms. Examples include enhancements to graphical user interfaces, authoring tools for 2D drawings and 3D animations, and interactive computer-aided design systems. Rich live demonstrations and course assignments will give you insights and skills to design and implement such tools for your own problems.

  • Nathan Glenn

    Nathan Glenn completed this course and found the course difficulty to be very hard.

    The lectures for this course are quite fascinating; basically the professor presents a different project from his research group (and there are lots of them, and they are all cool) each class. This part was neat. It was basically like watching a series of conference presentations, but less dry.
    The reason for the low rating is the difficulty level of doing this class as listed with "no prerequisites". If you try to do this class without any prior experience in computational geometry, programming graphics/animation of any kind, or making infographics, then you will have to put in a lot of extra hours to get anything done. There needs to be a previous class where they teach these skills.

    After this course I have no skills to do smth by myself. They only give an idea about computer graphics and some algorithms but it is useless for me because I wanted to use such tools and create my own works. They don't give such opportunity. I found this course as a waste of time!

    In the begining, I though that we will draw something or do some art stuff and learn how it works inside a computer. But now (after 6 weeks studying this course) I understood that I had leartn nothing and just wasted a lot of time for doing huge amount of strange tasks. I even do not really realize how these tasks connected with videos. In my opinion, it is absolutely unnecessary course.

    in depth, teaches principles and algorithms, not tool-use like some other courses, presents not-yet widespread research results, with substantial assignments
