Next week is going to be a busy one.
As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, I’ll be presenting another Introduction to Virtual Reality session in the Digital Media Lab next week on Monday, March 20th at 10:00 a.m. I’ll give a short introduction to VR, and then we’ll get some hands-on experience with the Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive, and the Microsoft HoloLens. * * * Note that this workshop will take place in the Digital Media Lab (H-1210) * * *
We’ll follow that up with an Introduction to Virtual Worlds workshop on Tuesday, March 21st at 3:30 p.m., in which we’ll talk about some of the characteristics and advantages of immersive 3D learning environments; I will also give a virtual tour of GGC Island (GGC’s virtual campus in Second Life) and (time permitting) a few other educational / community sims. This workshop will be repeated on Wednesday, March 29th at 10:00 a.m.
If you’re interested in learning more about the Academic Commons, I’ll be presenting an Introduction to the Academic Commons on Wednesday, March 22nd at 10:00 a.m. and again on Thursday, March 23rd at 2:00 p.m.
So… lots going on next week; join us for some interesting discussions and experiences! If you really wanted to attend one or more of these sessions but just can’t make it, don’t worry – they’ll be back (potentially in a new and improved format) in the Fall.
