Innovation Studio - Plan
DescriptionAugmented Reality / Virtual Reality – IITS is investigating opportunities to move forward with AR/VR/Immersive Technology. One of the production studios was taken offline for AY 18/19, however, there is one production studio available and is in heavy demand. During fall 2018, Academic Technology is working closely with faculty to conceptualize an innovation studio area for experimenting, developing, exploring AR/VR/Immersive and innovative technologies. The plans for this new space will be available later this fall 2018. These spaces give students hands-on and collaborative experiences that complement classroom instruction.
Start and Delivery Dates
