Overview

The XR industry is expected to contribute $1.5 trillion to global GDP by 2030, according to PwC

XR, the umbrella term for AR (Augmented Reality), VR (Virtual Reality) and MR (Mixed Reality), is expected to contribute $1.5 trillion to global GDP by 2030, according to PwC. And it’s not surprising why. As a technology that merges physical and digital worlds to create unique experiences, XR, also referred to as spatial computing, is changing the way designers and UI/UX experts create new products and experiences.

Countless examples across all industries make the case for designers and creators to extend their capabilities in XR. To name a few: Amazon, Wayfair and IKEA all have AR viewers for customers to view products in their homes; large automotive companies such as Audi and Toyota are using AR and VR to host virtual showrooms; VR is used for large-scale training for more than 1 million associates across Walmart.

As AR and VR find wide adoption and demand across industries, designers and creators need the right tools and skills that will help them define principles and rules for designing AR and VR interactions and experiences.

The AR and VR Visual Design Program is a 12-week program that provides training and project experience on user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) for immersive AR and VR experiences.

With live instruction, industry-based projects, and a focus on getting you portfolio-ready, the program will give you all the tools you need to launch your career as an expert in UX / UI for AR and VR.

The specialized curriculum covers all aspects of UX and UI for AR and VR including:

  • Storyboarding and Wireframing 
  • AR and VR Prototyping
  • Unity UI Projects and Systems
  • Unity Audio, Video, Animation, and Particle Effects
  • UX and UI for 2D and 3D projects
  • XR Design Package 
  • Product Pitch and Presentations
  • Professional Project Portfolio
