Virtual reality & immersive technologies

Of all forms of media, VR probably comes the closest to real world experience. Just like the physical world, it surrounds you in a completely immersive environment. You can use this to create experiences that would be impossible in any other medium. We’ve been sitting in front of flat screens facing forward for too long. It is more exciting and desirable than ever to leverage the space above, below, and behind the user. Excerpt from the Oculus Best Practices Guide

The Learning Environments Immersion Lab allows staff to try out the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Samsung Gear VR and consider the applications of virtual reality technology in teaching and learning, research and engagement. Consultation and assistance with VR related projects is also available.
