An up to date version of Chrome or Firefox will work (see our FAQ for more information). You can test if your browser supports this technology by visiting the WebGL project homepage.
This course is developed in conjunction with Autodesk, a worldwide leader in 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software. http://www.autodesk.com
See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.
By the end of this class you will know enough to make an animated 3D demo program that runs in a web browser, while also understanding the basic principles of how realistic computer images are generated.
You will also have a portfolio of small interactive programs that run in any web browser that supports WebGL.
