Symposium on the Future of Libraries
How can virtual reality advance immersive, interactive game-based engagement within a contextually-rich learning environment? As part of their Improving Undergraduate STEM Education project, researchers at Clemson university are exploring a VR application as part of their current focus on enabling field experiences through the use of virtual reality. Funded by the National Science Foundation (IUSE award #1504619) this project focuses on developing immersive virtual reality field experiences (VRFE) for use in educational settings with a first product specifically focused on a field experience in a virtual reproduction of the Grand Canyon targeted toward undergraduate introductory geology courses.
