(MIT.edu) MIT Open Learning recently explored the future of storytelling and learning through virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) by sponsoring a panel of faculty and industry experts in VR/AR, to showcase the power of these tools and their potential impact on learning. Speakers included Sanjay Sarma, vice president for Open Learning; Fox Harrell, a professor of digital media and artificial intelligence at MIT; Academy Award-winning director Shekhar Kapur; Berklee College of Music Professor Susan Rogers; Academy Award-winning sound designer Mark Mangini; and Edgar Choueiri, a professor of applied physics at Princeton University.
The sold-out event garnered an impressive level of interest from the public and students from MIT and Berklee College, who made up almost half of the audience. As VR/AR technology applications continue to grow, MIT Open Learning officials say they hope to hold more events that explore the intersection of science, media, and learning.
