Details

Offered in partnership with the Higher Ed IT Professionals Meetup group, this workshop provides an introduction to the use of Multi-User Online Virtual Environments (MUVEs) in the classroom. The lecture will survey the basic uses of MUVEs to convey information and opportunities for project based learning with commonly available platforms. We will also take special care to compare the traditional interface (screen + mouse + keyboard) to the new VR headset interfaces (e.g. an Oculus Rift).In the second half, attendees will virtually meet in MUVE using the HMD and computers available at Brookline Interactive Group. We will also experiment with content creation. The class is intended for teachers in colleges, high schools, and possibly middle schools.Thursday, December 6th, 7:00-10:30pm
Tuition: $60
