XR on Campus: Vanguard Applications in Teaching and Learning

Tuesday, October 15 | 2:15PM–3:00PM CT | W185d, Level 1
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Virtual reality, augmented reality, and 3D scanning and printing technologies—collectively called extended reality (XR) tools—are being adopted across higher education in service to the teaching and learning mission. In this session, we will present findings from the second year of the HP/EDUCAUSE Campus of the Future research project. We'll also include selected case studies of leading XR projects in higher education, serving as illustrations of the potential for these technologies to further the postsecondary teaching and learning mission.

Outcomes: Learn about how the variety of XR technologies can best support applications in various disciplines * Learn about XR technologies that could be effective for achieving learning objectives for a course at your institution * Understand the challenges and opportunities for deploying XR technologies in a course
