Consider these 10things that happen on a digital twin virtual reality campus that cannot happen in a real-world, physical campus:
human organ and step inside it. (Here similar video with Mark Gill in the SCSU CAVE: https://youtu.be/EGbToEeoDlA?t=74)
Step into a Star Trek-style transporter and beam up to a starship to learn astronomy on a space walk. Expand the dissectible pig to the size of a school bus and
space-walk through the organs and cavities as you learn about anatomy. View a wooly mammoth skeleton and then
step onto a time machine and go back in time 40,000 years to walk among a herd of wooly mammoths. Travel to the Great Wall of China, stand upon it and learn the history and engineering of this structure — all in the space of one class period.
Select from the world’s greatest paintings and organize an exhibit in a museum — and let every student do this in their own way.
Watch a video about dinosaurs and then watch as the
dinosaurs walk out of the screen and into the middle of the classroom.
Learn Spanish language and culture at the Pyramid of the Moon, rather than a four-walled classroom. Learn molecular biology by
expanding molecules to the size of a basketball. Gain a greater understanding of history by stepping back in time to the Roman Colosseum and touring it as a class just as it stood 2500 years ago.

A Toolkit for an Immersive VR/AR Experience: The Verb Collective
The Verb Collective is an open set of VR/AR assets built on Unity and designed to help nonprogrammers (arts and humanities students) that quickly transform ideas into 3D experiences. Learn how the Verb Collective is used in the classroom and explore templates to create your own action assets.
Outcomes: Help new VR/AR users quickly create their own 3D experiences using the Verb Collective framework * Access and install the framework * Add to the framework by using a simple verb-based template to outline new actions
