The design paradigms associated with immersive media technology are in a constant state of experimental change. Adequate design choices not only provide users with comfortable immersive technology experiences, but also have the potential to impact platform dependency and technological applicability. In this course, students will form deep contextual understanding of the physiological and technological design paradigms associated with immersive media development. Through facilitated hands-on experimentation with various platforms, software frameworks and game-engines, students will form critical analysis of existing systems of design and develop new knowledge in relation to next-generation technologies.
