No actual lectures but I can look over your shoulder to help with doing the assignments; making sure you don't go off on a wrong tangent, help getting unstuck, even doing something outside the course.

Course Direction

Welcome... This course "Comp 4501: Advanced Computer Game Design and Development" is a practical course aiming to understand the details of advanced facilities supported by state of the art game engines. Such facilities include notions such as shadows,order-independent transparency, relief mapping, ambient occlusion, deferred renderers, physics engines, occlusion culling, water flow, and lighting with huge numbers of lights.

We are always revising course materials particularly just before lecture presentation times. So up-to-date materials are best obtained afterwards...
