Virtual Reality Demonstration Session

Virtual Reality Demonstration Session In-Person

What to expect


We are continuing to integrate advanced technologies into your curriculum. As a result, you may be required at times to use devices such as virtual reality headsets etc. This group session (which will last up to one hour) will provide you with a gentle introduction to using VIVE focus 3 virtual reality headsets, and provide you with an opportunity to become familiar with the features such as setting boundaries, volume adjustments, vision focus and also how to navigate the library and apps already downloaded to the headset. You will be provided with instruction guides and links to videos after the session.

Come along with a friend and embrace the future.
