Hi everyone!

Robin de Lange (alumnus MT and currently working on his PhD research) initiated the Virtual Reality Learning Lab.

This Thursday Feb 23, the first meetup takes place. We provide cool presentations (some MT students will present as well), VR demos, drinks and food. You are all invited!

//// Invitation: ////

Through presentations and of course some cool VR demos, we’d like to introduce you to the activities of the VR Learning Lab. If you are interested in the use of VR in education yourself, this is your chance to meet like-minded people and discuss the possibilities of the introduction of VR in your school or company. Food and drinks are provided.

About the Virtual Reality Learning Lab
At the Virtual Reality Learning Lab we explore the possibilities of Augmented and Virtual Reality for education. The goals of the lab are to advance knowledge on Virtual Reality as a learning tool, accelerate the use of VR in education and to share gained knowledge and experience. To achieve these goals, we do fundamental research, teach courses, support students, organize workshops and masterclasses, develop applications and advise organisations on developments in this field. The VR Learning Lab operates with a network of students, researchers and freelancers and often collaborates with different companies and research institutions.
