Immersive methodologies for school and museum tours
VWBPE 2022 Presentation
Presented: April 1, 2022
Speaker: William Schmachtenberg / Dae Miami
Schools frequently do field trips in real life to museums, but with the recent focus on online learning due to COVID, why not take students on a virtual world tour to a museum or a field trip to the Cretaceous and see amazing dinosaurs in their habitat. These tours can be done using pcs, in virtual reality, or even on a chromebook! This presentation will focus on the work I have done to bring exhibits at the Virginia Museum of Natural History alive in virtual worlds.
- Participants will see how virtual worlds can be used to create immersive experiences for virtual field trips.
