This Platform provides 6 different courses on Emerging Technologies. It also provides three proficiency levels for the creation and development of games, namely the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels. All the courses are associated with the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
In this course, you will learn how Virtual Reality(VR) and Augmented Reality(AR) provide interactive experiences, the major elements in these technologies that shape these experiences and how AR and VR will be transforming our lives in the future. You will get a chance to create and design your over own AR and VR experiences using a very simple user-friendly platform called Hatch Kids Platform. This course is aligned to SDG 14 : Life Below Water.
States : This course is available for all states.
In this course, you will learn various concepts and terms related to Artificial Intelligence such as Machine learning, Neural networks, and Deep learning. You will also get to try your hands at some of the popular AI tools like Google's Teachable Machine and Dancing with AI to create your very own AI models. This course is aligned to SDG 4 : Quality Education.
In this course, you will learn about the major components of an embedded system and the different types of embedded systems with examples. You will also get a chance to learn how to design and simulate the circuit of an embedded system using Tinkercad platform. This course is aligned to SDG 12 : Responsible Consumption and Production.
In this course, you will gain a basic understanding of how an Internet of Things(IoT) system works, the main components of typical IoT devices and how IoT is transforming the world around us. You will learn to use basic IoT Tools such as Node MCU module and the Arduino IoT Cloud. This course is aligned to SDG 9 : Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure.
In this course, you will gain a basic understanding of a mobile app and how it works. You will learn about the main components and major steps involved in developing a mobile app. You will also learn about a no-code app development Platform called Thunkable to quickly and easily develop basic mobile apps. This course is aligned to SDG 8 : Decent Work and Economic Growth.
In this course, you will learn all about websites, understand the important elements required to design a website and also get a chance to explore an interesting online platform called Weebly that will let you create your own website without using any programming language. This course is aligned to SDG 8 : Decent Work and Economic Growth.
The Advanced level focuses on SDG 15: Life on Land. You will get an opportunity to script in UNITY. Experienced programmers use UNITY to develop 2D, 3D, virtual reality, augmented reality video games. You require no prior knowledge of UNITY. The course may not groom you to become masters of UNITY, but it definitely promises to make you familiar and comfortable with it.
The Intermediate level focuses on SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being. You will get to use a visual programming-based game engine called Construct to create games. You will be able to create 2D video games with only visual coding for which no prior programming experience is required. You will learn the concepts, tips and programming techniques to build fully functional games with the popular visual scripting editor, Construct. It is more complex than Scratch but with support from an active community and strong forum you will be able to create amazing desktop games by the end of this level.
The Beginner level is dedicated to SDG 13: Climate Action. You will use Scratch to drag ‘n’ drop actors on to a scene, and then control them using a free graphical and interactive programming language developed by MIT. You will create games using stories, animations, music, art and much more. You will also have access to the Scratch community (registered users of Scratch) who communicate, work and share ideas and resources with one another.
