None



--- Quote ---Those courses don't sound enticing enough yet, but if they offered something in graphics, either OpenGL, or even 3d modeling, PhotoShop, etc I may be interested. 

I suck at graphics and would love to learn some techniques for an artistically untalented person to create some simple, yet 'good looking' game graphics.

Me too, im in that boat also. Maybe someone in the forums can direct us to a good resource?

You really need to know python at an expert level, so far, this seems most important.
Iim still a noob there in python. but the theories of Ai are all in lectures, and i am attempting to abosorb it all....free.
Sign up, watch the lectures, free free free

AmazingJas:
If u get through the AI module, feel free to make a complete list of the concepts one would need to know before really attempting it...then I'll have some homework.

AmazingJas:
I wish I'd completed a bit of a refresher on math before beginning the MITx course...Took me ages to work out the polynomial exercises this week because it's been 25 years since I last looked at one. Onto hangman now though...should be more familiar territory.

Ugh, i just finished pset03.q2, took about an hour to work out 7 lines of code.   :doubt:

Onto newtons method and hangman today.

Hemlos:
Hey slydog,

I think the Edx gods answered your prayers....Berkley just today has added a graphics course!

Interestingly enough, i think most of the lectures are already posted on Youtube(CS184 Channel)

Note: its free, anyone can sign up and try to earn a certificate from berkley at this link: http://www.edx.org

ABOUT THIS COURSE

CS184.1x teaches the Foundations of Computer Graphics. Students will make images of 3D scenes in real-time, and with offline raytracing. This course runs for 6 weeks and consists of four segments. Each segment includes an individual programming assignment:
Overview and Basic Math (Homework 0: 10% of grade)
Transformations (Homework 1: 20% of grade)
OpenGL and Lighting (Homework 2: 35% of grade)
Raytracing (Homework 3: 35% of grade)
This term, students who earn a total score of 50% or greater will have passed the course and may obtain a free honor code certificate from BerkeleyX.


PREREQUISITES

Solid C/C++ programming background (Java is ok too; you will pick up C++).
Access to a relatively up-to-date computer (Windows, Mac OSX or Linux)
Solid high school mathematics; a review of the relevant linear algebra is included in the first segment.
