Introduction To Virtual Reality
This course will explore how Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality, collectively called Extended Reality, bring new perspectives to a broad range of fields including environmental science, sustainability, healthcare, design, engineering, architecture, tourism, law enforcement, marketing, and education. Students will engage with a variety of XR modalities, from mobile apps and computer-based simulations to fully immersive virtual reality experiences. Each student will be equipped with a VR head mounted display to discover firsthand the potential impact of this technology. Students will design an original concept for an XR application. The culmination of this course will be an XR product brief that students can use as a basis for future development, and as a strong portfolio piece for potential employers.
