Augmented and virtual reality technologies have been adopted in entertainment, communication, transportation and other industries, but what do they offer to academia?

Michigan State University faculty and staff can explore the possibilities during a free symposium, Oct. 10 at 9 a.m. in the main MSU library.

The event will bring scholars, educators and technologists from across campus together to share their work and experiences related to augmented reality and virtual reality, or AR/VR.

During the event, attendees will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of AR/VR; defining methodologies, comparing and contrasting aspects of the technologies, as well as identifying processes and resources related to developing AR and VR experiences.

Paricipants will leave with a better understanding around how the technologies are being used campus wide, what future innovations look like and what collaborations exist.

The symposium is hosted by MSU Libraries, the Learning and Assessment Center, the Hub, MSU IT, the College of Arts and Letters and the College of Communication Arts and Sciences.
