XR-Based Learning: How Institutions Engage Through Immersive Experiences

Immersive, multisensory experiences can draw students and faculty into other realms, beyond the limitations of the physical world. Not unlike today’s popular escape rooms, in these scenarios, learners may have to solve complex puzzles or improvise with found elements—sometimes while communicating with others who are also engaged in the virtual environment. Launched in early 2017, HP’s Campus of the Future project engaged with EDUCAUSE in an exploration of extended reality (XR) technologies in higher education. Specifically, the project included augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and 3D printing and scanning. While it’s not the first effort to explore the integration of these technologies into educational experiences, it is perhaps one of the broadest to date, spanning 11 institutions and learning environments across the United States.
