AR/VR (Metaverse) & Media


Welcome to “Introduction to WebXR: Building Immersive Web Experiences.” In this course, we will explore the exciting world of WebXR and learn how to create immersive and interactive web applications using augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies. WebXR allows developers to create immersive experiences that can be accessed directly from a web browser, without the need for additional software or plugins.

Throughout this course, we will cover the fundamental concepts of WebXR, including the underlying technologies, best practices, and tools. You will gain hands-on experience by building several projects that leverage WebXR to create interactive and engaging web experiences. By the end of the course, you will have the skills and knowledge to develop your own WebXR applications and contribute to the growing field of immersive web development.
