What is the history of SIGGRAPH Courses?
SIGGRAPH Courses have educated computer graphics professionals and enthusiasts for over 30 years. The conference has established a long tradition of workshops, tutorials, and courses throughout its history. During those years, the Courses program has grown in format, style, and content. Today’s formats include full-day, half-day, and tutorial (1.75 hour) presentation sessions. Recent presentations have expanded to include hands-on participatory content, intranet wireless interactive content, and special-venue presentations. Course materials have advanced from simple paper handouts to printed notebooks to sophisticated, media-rich digital materials.
- We don’t learn hands-on skills in conceptual courses, such as Press History, Media Law, Media Ethics, etc. Why are these courses offered?
- Are Classics, History or Philosophy university level courses equivalent to the English pre-professional requirement?
- Are any History courses available for test-out?
