That was a lot of people in the Stanford lab! Photogrammetry scans of real anatomy for VR education! Done from anywhere in the world! Scale up the models and walk through the body! Get a totally different understanding of a subject! Education is reaching a turning point! I wonder how universities and colleges are going to adapt? Will they be quick enough? Stanford just purchased x70 Oculus VR Quest we just ordered another 350 headsets for a client! Things are going to hot up!

Thanks Again It was awesome! Daniel Dyboski-Bryant Chris Madsen Brian Waterfield Oscar Molnar

VR for student orientation

my note: the LITA publication about the Emporia State University (see below) pursues the same goals of the project two SCSU librarians, Susan Hubbs, MLIS, and Plamen Miltenoff, Ph.D. MLIS, have developed:

This library orientation was an improved version of Plamen Miltenoff’s 2014-2016 research project with numerous national and international publications and presentations: https://web.stcloudstate.edu/pmiltenoff/bi/

Virtual Reality as a Tool for Student Orientation in Distance Education Programs

A Study of New Library and Information Science Students

ABSTRACT

Virtual reality (VR) has emerged as a popular technology for gaming and learning, with its uses for teaching presently being investigated in a variety of educational settings. However, one area where the effect of this technology on students has not been examined in detail is as tool for new student orientation in colleges and universities. This study investigates this effect using an experimental methodology and the population of new master of library science (MLS) students entering a library and information science (LIS) program. The results indicate that students who received a VR orientation expressed more optimistic views about the technology, saw greater improvement in scores on an assessment of knowledge about their program and chosen profession, and saw a small decrease in program anxiety compared to those who received the same information as standard text-and-links. The majority of students also indicated a willingness to use VR technology for learning for long periods of time (25 minutes or more). The researchers concluded that VR may be a useful tool for increasing student engagement, as described by Game Engagement Theory.

https://account.altvr.com/events/1459609665267564719

Tuesday, June 16, 2020 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (CDT)

This event will be an expert panel considering research in/about VR. The experts in the panel are; Sam Reno, Géraldine Perriguey, Anthony Chaston PhD and Evelien Ydo who all have presented for the research track before (biographies below, see the EDVR YouTube channel for their previous presentations). The event will be highly interactive, where the audience is welcomed to introduce topics and questions for the panel to discuss. At the end of the event there will be some time to network as well.

The Educators in VR Research Team features researchers from across the spectrum of VR/AR/XR research and development, coming together to share their knowledge, techniques, and research and learn from each other. Join us to discuss the possibilities and potential of research in VR. We host regular meetups and workshops for discussion and learning.

10 Museums We Recommend You Visit (Using Virtual Reality)

https://ph.asiatatler.com/life/10-museums-we-recommend-you-visit-using-virtual-reality

please contact pmiltenoff@stcloudstate.edu, if you need Google Cardboard set for your classes.
please contact mcgill@stcloudstate.edu for Oculus Go set for your classes.

Directions:
– Open YouTube
– Type / Voice Command: e.g. Smithsonian 360 or British Museum 360 or Ufizzi 360 and choose 360 video files suitable for the content of your course.
– e.g., Smithsonian has an excellent 360 degree tour of the Space Shuttle + narrative about the deployment of the Hubble Telescope: https://youtu.be/o3XS_5L–Qg, which can be an excellent intro to Astronomy class
– e.g., Smithsonian offers a 360 degree tour of the Museum of American History: https://youtu.be/TkUPzRB7p5g
– e.g., Ufizzi Gallery, British Museum present 360 degree tours of artifacts for Ancient History, Art, History of Art: https://youtu.be/SPeW0YWLVvE

XR Storytellers: Learners Making Immersive Stories

LIVE NOW
Thursday, May 7, 2020 from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM (CDT)

PRESENTATION
Our team will share lessons learned in collaborating to create immersive experiences that accelerate STEM education. Find out how students achieve classroom learning objectives by designing AR experiences. Watch a demonstration of how an immersive scientific story is co-created by students and teachers in a virtual learning environment. Explore novel techniques for supporting learners to demonstrate understanding and share knowledge using spatial technologies and storytelling principles. We invite guests to share their questions and perspectives on the possibilities and limitations of XR storytelling to facilitate relational connections to curriculum and instruction.

PRESENTERS:
Sarah Cassidy | Janelle LaVoie | Quincy Wang | Poh Tan
We are a team of VR learners from the University of Saskatchewan and Simon Fraser University in Canada. Our research explores innovative uses of immersive technology for STEM education and pro-social change.
