Academia in VW and what’s up at Educare

10/12/2022 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PST


Virtual World learning is now pinging louder on the radar of academic administrators. Talk of the Metaverse may have confounded the issue, but the benefits of immersive experience are proven. The Educare region provides a gentle first-time orientation for newcomers (and hesitant returnees) to explore VW education possibilities. For this ‘tour’ please land at the Orientation Dome, give it a quick walk-through, then climb the stairs to the large lit Auditorium above. Throughout your visit, please try the perspective of a first-time VW visitor as you assess Educare region resources and rides. Welcome!
