Virtual Reality is taking the Imagine BEACH 2030 by storm. Ideas range from study abroad solutions to in-headset faculty advising sessions. The community at CSULB is keenly aware of the benefits (and distractions) of having more Virtual Reality enabled learning & campus experiences.
Mahmoud Albawaneh posits that emerging tech, including virtual reality, could help CSULB become a more ubiquitous presence for learners around the world.
Will experience in cross-cultural virtual collaboration be a plus for future employers as Yul Chen suggests?
And to reach #InclusiveExcellence, should we be providing a virtual campus for disabled students and teachers?
Or will virtual classrooms become a shadow future resulting in less community and more isolation?
However you feel about the role of Virtual Reality in higher education, the CSULB University Library is currently developing a VR Lab so weigh in now and get your imagination out there!
