Join us on July 23rd, 2019: Demystify Virtual Reality

Click Here to Register: Register Today! 

In this, the first of our deeper dive sessions, you will experience both 360VR video and 3D graphics-based virtual reality. You will receive “hands on” experience with a range of devices, including:

• Cardboard/Phone viewer

• Tethered, such as Oculus Rift and Lenovo Mirage

• Untethered, such as Oculus Go and just released Quest

You will learn from case studies and more about the development process for both types of VR.

We are especially excited with the potential of the new, inexpensive, untethered devices as an opportunity to introduce XR into your curriculum at low risk and cost.
