How the Specialization Works

Take Courses

A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.

Hands-on Project

Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.

Earn a Certificate

When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Yes! To get started, click the course card that interests you and enroll. You can enroll and complete the course to earn a shareable certificate, or you can audit it to view the course materials for free. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. Visit your learner dashboard to track your progress.

  • This course is completely online, so there’s no need to show up to a classroom in person. You can access your lectures, readings and assignments anytime and anywhere via the web or your mobile device.

  • The Specialisation contains five courses, each of which has four modules of content. You should be able to complete each module in approximately five hours of work, meaning that the Specialisation as a whole should take you 100 hours to complete. Each course has an indicative four week structure but you are welcome to complete each course at your own pace.

  • You will need to have basic programming knowledge before embarking on later courses in the specialisation. For Introduction to Virtual Reality, no prior knowledge is required.

  • We strongly recommend that you take the courses in the suggested order, but this is not required. As the fifth course, Creating Your First Virtual Reality Game, will draw on aspects of all of the other courses in the Specialisation, you will need to complete these before embarking on this part of the Specialisation.

  • No, these MOOCs are not credit bearing.

  • Even if you have no previous experience in Virtual Reality and/or game programming, by the end of the specialisation you will be able to evaluate existing VR applications, and design, test, and implement your own VR experiences/games using Unity.
