“University of Calgary’s One Button Virtual Reality Room”


Some universities are using virtual reality for educational purposes. University of Calgary for instance has created a One Button Studio virtual reality room: ” Imagine snorkeling and floating in the ocean with whales … right in the middle of the library. The new virtual reality room on the third floor of the Taylor Family Digital Library (T.F.D.L) at the University of Calgary makes this possible. While the technology certainly has entertainment value, its applications for teaching, learning and research seem endless.” I just might have to attend some classes to adapt this technology in my industrial maintenance lessons.
