“With regard to the specifics of what participants will be learning, the course is designed for those who are entirely new to it along with a breakdown of popular ‘use cases’ for those experiences and a walkthrough for exactly how the effect is accomplished using AR use flows,” Android Headlines reported.
This could be Google’s attempt of bringing its AR-building platforms to float above the others, including Apple’s “ARKit”, along with helping creators.
The enrolment for the four-week programme has already started and the classes would commence from July 16, Android Headlines reported.
