IC Immersive

IC Immersive is an initiative by Teaching and Learning with Technology designed to explore the application of immersive media (augmented and virtual reality and 360 video) in academia and serve as a resource for the IC Community.

VR in education is predicted to be a $200 million industry by 2020 and $700 million by 2025.

Immersive technologies are quickly infiltrating our everyday lives with newer smartphones and tablets having built in augmented reality support and virtual reality headsets becoming cheaper and more mobile. The concepts themselves are not new, but the recent technology advances have allowed immersive technologies to become common in classrooms, businesses, and even consumer homes.
