Even before the pandemic, extended reality (XR) technologies were proving their value to education. In the changed circumstances that colleges and universities face today, XR can play an even more significant role. But how do campuses support the emerging needs of faculty and students for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies that are rapidly evolving, with a dizzying array of devices, cloud platforms and software technologies? In a discussion hosted by Megan Elliott from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Carson Center, and Randall Rode from Yale University, join colleagues from UPenn, Dartmouth, Hamilton, Simmons, Syracuse, and others as we share lessons learned over the last year and plans to support XR needs on campus.
