Chennai, 8 March 2019: How would you like to learn about Emperor Akbar walking through Fatehpur Sikri or exploring environmental concerns while trekking through the Himalayas? Thanks to Virtual Reality, classes at Krea will be immersive, allowing for each student to experience knowledge at its most personal level. Krea University and Inspirit have announced a formal agreement to reimagine the learning experience for Krea University’s undergraduate students using virtual reality (VR) technologies as part of the new Media Laboratory at the Sri City campus.
Inspirit’s prior work in formal and informal educational environments has shown that highly-immersive VR experiences, when designed and deployed the right way, can greatly improve learning outcomes & foster inquiry-based learning. With active student involvement and participation, starting August 2019, Krea and Inspirit envision augmenting as many first-year core and skill courses by providing multi-perspective VR experiences and connecting with narratives, from social justice to mathematics.
