The Future of VR in Education

This event has passed.

From the Oculus Rift to 360 videos on YouTube, VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) seem to be everywhere right now. While universities have been experimenting with these methods for years, the democratization of the technology has opened up a variety of opportunities to staff and students alike. Where are we now and where can we go from here?
