Learn to code or teach Unity with two live courses coming in July

Create with Code Live is back for a summer session, for anyone who wants to learn to code the fun way – by making games. We also have a brand-new course, Unity for Educators: A Beginner’s Guide, designed for teachers who are interested in bringing Unity into the classroom and are new to Unity. Both free four-week courses blend live, interactive sessions with Unity experts and self-paced online learning, starting on July 13.

We launched the first Create with Code Live course in March as a way to support our community of creators during a time of change, as people shifted to remote work and learning. Because of the incredible response and interest we’ve seen in this course, we’re expanding our live learning offerings, starting with two new courses. The first is for anyone interested in learning to code. The second is for educators interested in teaching their students real-time 3D design and development skills to make games, AR/VR applications, and more.  

Create with Code Live: Learn to program by making games

We’re excited to launch our second Create with Code Live on July 13. This free four-week course is designed for busy professionals who want to learn programming through a mix of self-paced learning and live instruction. Each week, you’ll work through the course material independently and meet with a live Unity instructor online three times. Each hour-long live session will offer the chance to get feedback and pro tips, ask questions, and work with other engaged learners. This mixed-learning format is ideal for Unity beginners who are juggling responsibilities and need both the flexibility of an on-demand course and the benefits of live instruction.

By the end of Create with Code Live, you’ll have gained foundational skills in Unity and C# programming and be able to create your own real-time 3D interactive games and experiences. The course will also set you up for success by teaching you the skills required to take the Unity Certified User exam.

Unity for Educators: A Beginner’s Guide

As demand for AR/VR and game development expertise continues to grow exponentially, more educators are bringing Unity into the classroom to prepare their students with the skills for these promising careers. But we’ve found that the majority of educators who come to Unity are new to real-time 3D technology and need support to help their students learn. 

Unity for Educators: A Beginner’s Guide is a free, live course created by educators for educators – from secondary schools to higher education and beyond, including nontraditional programs like boot camps or extracurricular classes. Instructors and guest speakers will introduce you to creating and teaching with Unity, and offer guidance in best practices for bringing 3D interactive technology into the classroom and learning alongside your students. 

The course starts on July 13 and runs for four weeks. Each week, you will engage with three hours of self-paced learning online, and there’s an optional one-hour live session where you can connect with fellow learners, hear from experts, and get personalized support from the Unity education team. Live sessions will be held at 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT, and you can register for the time that works for you (or both). 

Through this course you will:

Gain hands-on experience with Unity and understand the platform’s wide-ranging applications
