Study Interactive Rendering, for free.

A few weeks back I shared a link to the Foundations of Computer Graphics course being offered free at Berkley.  Well, the Awesomeness that is Udacity are also offering an introductory course to 3D Computer Graphics, with a focus on Interactive Rendering.

About the course
CS291 will teach you about the basic principles of 3D computer graphics: meshes, transforms, cameras, materials, lighting, and animation.  By the end of this class you will know enough to make an animated 3D demo program that runs in a web browser, while also understanding some basic principles of how realistic computer images are generated.

Prerequisites
Knowing how to program in some language is all you’ll need to get started. Some knowledge of JavaScript is useful later on if you wish to make your projects more interactive and engaging. Familiarity with vectors and matrices will ease your way but is not critical.
