Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, 8 PM ET: VIRTUAL REALITY IN EDUCATION
Dr. William Schmachtenberg (Dae Miami in Second Life) will share the research he conducted this summer into Virtual Reality. There is so much hype about Google Cardboard, Gear VR, and Oculus Rift, but how much of it is hype and will it help educate students? Dr. Schmachtenberg has reviewed apps on Gear VR and Oculus Rift for their educational value and will address practical questions about using this technology including purchasing, installation and integration. Join the Virtual Environments PLN on VSTE Island In Second Life for this presentation about what is really happening in VR, based on hands on research of the hardware.
