Only students who have attended at least 70% of the lessons and have carried out the exercises will be able to take the profit exam.

Assessment methods

The final evaluation will be the result of a scrutiny. The judgement will be based on the results of the in itinere tests and group exercises carried out during the course.

Teaching tools

The course will use Autodesk Vred's computer lab and real time rendering software and other applications that will be shown in class from time to time.

Based on the evolution of the COVID-19, lessons may require the use of the Teams platform for both frontal lessons and revisions.

Official communications and teaching materials will be sent and made available through the platform https://iol.unibo.it/.
