VictoryXR: Morehouse College Launches Groundbreaking Classes in Virtual Reality
- Morehouse College, the alma mater of Martin Luther King Jr., Spike Lee, and Senator Raphael Warnock, will lead higher education into a new frontier this spring as students will be offered two classes held in virtual reality (VR).
- Just like a real campus, a VR campus allows students to attend class together in real-time, conduct science experiments, and dig for fossils. Unlike a real campus, students on the VR campus can expand a human heart and step inside it, jump into a time machine and visit wooly mammoths, or beam up to a starship and learn astronomy close up.
Forbes: Morehouse College Starts VR Classes With VictoryXR
- Morehouse College is teaching two class in VR using the Victory XR platform (based on Engage), with support from Qualcomm, which provided an Oculus Quest 2 to students. The Quest utilizes the Qualcomm’s XR2 chip set, as does every other mobile VR headset with the exception of Magic Leap (for now). Using this headset, remote students meet on a virtual Morehouse campus to attend their virtual classes.
