Teaching online has become a new platform for many faculty members. Engaging students using this new platform can be challenging. One way faculty members can engage students while teaching online is by using a form of Mixed Reality. This webinar will look at the differences between Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and 360 videos to learn more about these new teaching platforms. Learn some tips and best practices to implement this technology into the online classroom or have information for future in-person classes.
