Would you like to start using avatar-based meetings in virtual reality environments for teaching and learning?

Some advantages of teaching, learning and collaboration in VR rooms are that all students are noticeably in the same room, can see and hear each other immediately and even have an impressive experience in 3D and 360 degrees (though participation without special VR equipment and with a variety of devices, such as desktops, laptops, tablets or smartphones can participate too).

VR environments such as AltspaceVR and Mozilla Hubs are available free of charge and offer ready-made spaces in which different learning scenarios can become a reality. In this pre-conference workshop you will be able to experience and experiment with interaction and teaching scenarios in VR spaces of Mozilla Hubs.

Join us to learn how to put a specific VR classroom into operation and how to invite students to your learning environment. We will use a variety of free VR spaces and you will be able to participate with your own avatar with or without VR equipment.

Participants are invited to use their laptop or, if available, their VR device.

Mozilla Hubs is browser-based, therefore no installation is needed. It runs on Windows, OSX, Android, IOS and all VR-Devices which can start VR-Applikations in a browser.
