VR Game Development 101 – Interaction Fundamentals

This course is a subset of lessons from Discover the XR Interaction Toolkit for VR, which is included as a part of our Subscription package.

Master the foundations of virtual reality projects!

Virtual reality has found wide applications across multiple industries – including retail, industrial training, video games, and much more. Using Unity’s XR Interaction Toolkit, it’s also become incredibly easy for most developers to create novel experiences that take advantage of these numerous opportunities.

In this course, you’ll explore the fundamentals of adding the XR Interaction Toolkit to your Unity projects to make them VR-ready. You’ll also learn how, without code, you can use the toolkit’s pre-built components to make interactable objects that can be picked up with your controllers!

No matter what kind of VR experience you want to build, these core principles will help you take the first step into building VR projects quickly and easily.

This course assumes basic familiarity with Unity.

You will learn how to:

  • Create VR-oriented Unity projects
  • Install the XR Interaction Toolkit
  • Configure an XR Rig
  • Tweak settings for Oculus Quest devices
  • Make objects interactable with components

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.



With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.



I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.



The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
