10 Institutions Opening 'Metaversity' Campuses - Rhea Kelly, Campus Technology

This fall, students at 10 colleges and universities across the United States will be able to take courses on a "metaversity" campus, an exact virtual replica of their institution's physical campus. Each campus was built by education metaverse company VictoryXR on EngageVR, a virtual world building platform for immersive meetings, virtual events and learning experiences. The metaversity courses will be synchronous, and students can attend whether they are learning on campus or remotely. Each student will receive a Meta Quest 2 virtual reality headset for use during their course (courses can also be accessed via PC).
