Create 3D digital environments

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Reference books for 'Create 3D digital environments' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria



Clarify work requirements

1. With reference to production documentation, determine requirements and purpose for 3D digital environments

2. In consultation with relevant personnel, determine work flow sequences to ensure that production schedule deadlines are met

3. Select software that best suits the type of production and delivery platform for which 3D digital environments are being created

4. Gather and analyse reference materials to help with visualisation of 3D environments

Create 3D digital environments

5. Use software features to build a previsualisation of environments in relation to reference materials and submit to relevant personnel for approval

6. Build environment models and progressively refine models until they meet design requirements

7. Check integrity of models and ensure spatial relationship meets design requirements

8. Apply texture coordinates as required

9. Create and incorporate matte paintings as required

10. Manipulate software features to apply lighting and shaders as required

11. Experiment with different lighting rigs and select a rig that meets design requirements

12. Continuously refine all aspects of 3D digital environments until the required creative effect is achieved

13. Submit environments to relevant personnel for comment on whether production requirements have been met and make final adjustments as required

Finalise projects

14. Render and output environments in required format and submit to relevant personnel by agreed deadlines

15. Finalise projects according to enterprise procedures, such as making back-up copies of files and completing workplace documentation

16. Participate in project evaluations and contribute ideas and suggestions about ways to improve future projects
