Emerging Media Lab

ETS contributed to the creation of the Emerging Media Lab, which is a high-end virtual reality (VR) lab any UBC faculty, staff, and students can use to experience virtual reality simulations. The lab is currently located at Vantage College and will be housed in Scarfe in the Fall term.

ETS has piloted the use of VR with Dr. Elizabeth Jordan (ECPS) for teacher candidates to experience visual impairments and to design inclusive learning strategies. You can read more about the pilot in this blog post.

On May 10th, ETS went for a demo session of HTC Vive at the Emerging Media Lab, then housed in Vantage College. Take a look at some pictures from the demo session:
