In this series, participants are going to learn about the concept of Virtual Reality and 3D design by developing a 3D environment with multiple scenes using the Co-spaces software. They will design the 3D environment, add a 360-degree scene and a video break. The theme used will be inspired by the long standing Islamic heritage of the horse-riding sport.  


What You'll Need

  • Computer/ Laptop.
  • Internet connection.
  • CoSpaces software:
