UNC Students Attend Remote Learning Classes In VR

Some University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill students have gotten the unique chance to attend class in a virtual reality environment while taking classes from home amid the coronavirus pandemic.
 

 

The class was taught by Steven King, an associate professor at the UNC School of Media and Journalism.

"They put on the headset each week for class and they're transported into the VR classroom" King told ABC News.

 

The experience was featured on the ABC News Special "Pandemic: What You Need to Know."

"When Steven decided to mail the Oculus headset to our house I bragged about it to my family and my friends because who else gets to go into the classroom in a virtual reality space rather than on Zoom or something?" one student told ABC News.
