VictoryXR is doubling down on its progress with digital twin universities. Steve Grubbs, CEO of VictoryXR, announced a second flight of schools under VictoryXR’s partnership with Meta, following the round of ten successful metaversity launches across the U.S. in the fall of 2022.
The list includes:
| • Loyola Marymount University (CA)|
• Cal State Northridge (CA)
• Indiana Wesleyan University (IN)
• Metropolitan State University Denver (CO)
• Florida A&M University (FL)
• Lorain County Community College (OH)
• Jackson State University (MS)
• North Carolina A&T State University (NC)
| • Northern Virginia Community College (VA)|
• University of Montana (MT)
• Clemson University (SC)
• Luna Community College (NM)
• Arizona State University (AZ)
• Wake Forest University (NC)
• Columbus State University (GA)
• Florida State University (FL)
Metaversities open up immersive, 3D classrooms to students who are learning in virtual reality. Even more, it enables students and professors to be together on a simulated campus in a group setting so they can learn-by-doing.
VictoryXR previously announced the first round of ten schools launching classes in the fall of 2022, utilizing VR labs and classrooms on digital twin replica campuses, better known as metaversities.
“Students should have the opportunity to learn in both worlds: real and virtual. Utilizing Web conference tools like Zoom has very limited possibilities, while going to school in a brick-and-mortar classroom is not possible for all students. The immersive VR classroom solves these problems,” said Steve Grubbs, commenting on the success of metaversities to this point.
Dr. Muhsinah Morris, the director of Morehouse in the Metaverse, has been a pioneer in the field of immersive learning. “We continue to see growth on our campus as more professors and more students want to learn on the metaversity campus. We are seeing gains in student performance and student engagement.”
