AR/VR Special Interest Group

Augmented and virtual reality are fast becoming practical tools that can enhance the learning experience and accelerate student learning. EUNIS has launched a new special interest group (SIG) to look at this topic during the #EUNIS20 Congress. Watch the recording from the session here.

The group is dedicated to sharing on the potential uses of virtual reality and augmented reality in Higher Education. Participants can be experienced users who wish to exchange on their technology watch and on their experimentation but also novices who need advice to start well. To apply to the group, please write to arvr@eunis.org.
