this is the best course to learn , if you are interested in augmented reality , i gives you the basic knowledge of what augmented reality is and what resources you need to start your AR dev journey.

This is a great course especially for a newbie to know the overview of AR and ARCore. This also can help expand the knowledge on how to use AR in better ways which are not solely for entertainment.

The course is very basic. It covers all of the introductory blocks and resources. However the course is not helpful for developer as no code is introduced. Some basic development would have enhanced it.

Está bien pensado y como introducción a la realidad aumentada está bien, pero está desactualizado. POLY fue desconectado el 30 de junio de 2021... hace más de un año, sería bueno actualizar contenidos.

A very high level overview of ARCore with a lot out of outdated material. Several resources mentioned in the class have been deprecated and/or are no longer available (i.e., Poly and Sceneform).

Pretty basic course. Does touch base on a few important topics. Keeps recommending Google Poly for assets while the project has been shut down by Google. Definitely needs an upgrade.

The course gives you a glance of what AR really is, it would clear up all your doubts regarding the same. But the practical knowledge that i was craving was somewhat missing here.

I was expecting there to be a hands-on component, which there wasn't. Also, some of the content was repetitive and out of date, for example, Google Poly has been shut down.

Alot of information to take in.

I think this is also not suitable for complete beginners like me I found the course especially the sceneform part really hard to understand.

The introduction of AR was awsome. However, the section of ARcore needs more details to understand for beginner folks, and more practical examples are required, indeed.

This course is good for those who are looking forward to knowing the basics of Arcore but does not include any practical or building a basic Arcore application

Basic overview of what Augmented Reality is & what are its component. Take this course only if you don't know anything about AR & you're an absolute beginner

It is good to try to make aware people about AR. Now they have an idea about it that how its work and what are its benefits and in which field we can use it.

Should have had programming tutorials in the form of video to show how to setup the environment and get up and running with building ARCore apps in Android.

This could be even better by showing how the things work in ARCore, like how anchors are internally processed by ARCore or how ARCore estimates the light.

The course seems more lively with its realistic examples.

But it would be better if you include a demo video that shows how to develop a basic AR app

Good interaction course for totally newbies in AR, but if you have some minimal knowledge in the field we you need an advanced course than that.

The course was very good but I paid for a certificate and never received one. So I wasted my money and have no certificate of completion.

The course is good, but on the free version all you do is watch videos and read articles. There isn't much for learners to actually do.

Pretty interesting and well-presented. But beware, this course is super basic and easy. I would have liked some more in-depth material.

Just a general introduction on AR. Good course to get familiar with the glossary of this field, but it is not a practical course.

Im failing to see a purpose for this material to be a "course" rather than a few instructional videos (on Youtube, for example).

curso muy completo, te da una idea muy general de que es la tecnologia AR, aunque esperaba algunas practicas para principiantes

The parts, and assessmentquestions, about Poly is outdated.

From "Poly was shut down on June 30, 2021"

By Luke P

Good introductory concepts. However, the final module is completely outdated due to the fact Poly has been shut down.

Largely overestimating the reading time for many sections, this course probably takes about 3 hours to complete.
