Classroom Integration of AR/VR
Faculty currently exploring the use of AR/VR in their classrooms
This project involves eCampus working with faculty members to incorporate virtual
reality/augmented reality into a course during the semester. This project supports
faculty members in the following ways:
- Provide support for exploring applications relevant to the instructor’s content area
- Provide support in designing virtual/augmented reality lesson plans
- Coordinate demonstrations/meetings with developers as needed
- Provide training on the equipment and capabilities
- Provide instructional design guidance
- Locate and share relevant research
- Observe/provide support for a minimum of one lesson

For this project, the participant will interact with a counselee in an immersive environment.
The participant will view a scenario and then react to the scenario verbally and non
verbally or choose an option that best describes their desired response. Based on
the participants reactions or choice, the scenario would change and the participant
would get immediate feedback from their actions or choices.
This project is looking at relating geographical information in a 3D/virtual environment.
Through the combination of mapping data and 3D modeling, the information can transform
from static to immersive. This project will provide students with a "hands-on" environment.
The technology currently getting used is ArcGIS 360 VR.
The project is looking to develop an immersive experience that combines the anatomy
of the heart alongside a variety of ECG patterns. The project invoices the development
of this activity for a virtual reality environment. Technology currently getting used

Sociology and Interdisciplinary Social Sciences
For this VR Storytelling project, students design a virtual environment that tells
the story of people and events in Asian American history. Students will draw from
multidisciplinary research, evaluate social science information, draw on different
points of view, identify and conceptualize how dynamics of ethnic, cultural, gender/sexual,
age, class, regional, national, transnational, and global identities impact people,
and demonstrate a knowledge of how US political institutions work.

Chemistry and Science Education
The AR/VR science project aims to prepare future science teacher to be technology
innovators in their classrooms and create new learning opportunities to enhance student
success with virtual reality. The teacher candidates will explore virtual reality
app on iPad along with HTC Vive and Google Cardboard to interact with interactive
3D science models in a direct and engaging way. They will be able to create, publish
and share interactive presentations with VR content creator for their lessons. Incorporating
iPad and VR equipment in the science education course creates new opportunities for
teacher candidates making new connections to the science concept and encourages students
to ask more questions and take charge of their learning.
Occupational therapy students must learn to evaluate the home environment for potential obstacles to performance
and safety, and develop recommendations and intervention plans for clients. The virtual
home will ensure that every student will encounter predetermined barriers to independent
living and participation. The project combines kinesthetic, visual, and verbal learning
in an active learning situation. Class discussion about problems encountered in the
virtual home should promote pragmatic and collaborative reasoning abilities.
Introductory, fundamental engineering mechanics courses, such as statics, mechanics
of materials, dynamics, and mechanics of fluids, have far too long been focused on
intense mathematical and theoretical concepts. My research proposes to provide a
virtual reality gamification platform for these difficult concepts which will take
students through expeditions in a near-future world after a major earthquake hits
California. They will learn strenuous concepts, which in my opinion require more than
just lecturing in mastering them. My goal is to spark students’ curiosity into a
burning flame in engineering.
