At the XR Center we encourage the exploration of this new immersive medium with the array of emerging tools we offer. Our expanding experience library is curated to include a diverse set of topics and genres. We want our students and faculty to explore, create and critique its applications to advance our understanding of its impact on media, society and education. Our goal is to promote engagement with all aspects of VR, AR, MR and 360 media, and to remove any barriers that participants might feel when entering this emerging field. Get inspired, and once you have a concept, we will do our best to provide the tools and guide you to realize your vision.
The XReality Lab offers a variety of online and virtual sessions and workshops. You can find information about some of our session below. For more information you can reach us at email@example.com.
Open hour sessions are meant for a general introduction and exploration of the lab, its resources, and introductory experiences in virtual, augmented, and mixed realities depending on space and time.
Workshops are sessions created by the XReality Center that focus on specific topics within virtual, augmented, and mixed realities. Individuals can reserve spots within these workshops. Spaces are limited.
