Imagination Announces First Complete University Teaching Course on OpenGL ES 2.0 Mobile Graphics

Imagination Technologies announces a new offering as part of its Imagination University Programme (IUP) that provides the first complete teaching course on mobile graphics. "An Introduction to Mobile Graphics" includes a rich set of teaching materials and practical exercises that leverage Imagination's popular PowerVR graphics processors (GPUs). The new course has been developed so that little to no previous knowledge of graphics is required, and the content is adaptable to fit most teaching methods and structures. This introductory course is based around OpenGL ES 2.0, the most widely deployed and adopted mobile graphics API. Read More
