The learning experience has transformed over the past two years - and college faculty are poised to change much more. As new technologies enable more immersive digital learning experiences, colleges and their students are discovering the benefits of virtual reality tools.
Transforming College Teaching offers a look at some of the successes at forward-thinking institutions that are already exploring the possibilities with VR, AR, and XR tools. Read the Case Study to discover how VR modules enhanced coursework at Jackson State University, providing for a deeper learning experience beyond textbooks and lectures.
