We have an exciting new meetup planned with Jeremy Nelson who will share some recent XR initiatives at the university of Michigan.

University of Michigan – XR for Teaching and Learning at Scale

Jeremy Nelson is the director of the University of Michigan Extended Reality Initiative, where he works alongside a team of developers and student fellows to create XR content for faculty members to include in their courses. Projects funded by the XR Initiative spans the range of development-heavy video game-style virtual reality experiences and 360 video immersive content to augmented and mixed reality in healthcare. Jeremy also consults on XR-related projects across the University of Michigan and he will discuss how they are exploring virtual production and using tools like Disguise for teaching.

We hope to see you on the 26th, 16:00 CET

Upcoming: Meetup #14 – Prototyping Strategies for XR

Date: February 23, 2022

Time: 15:30 – 17:00 CET

Location: online

Prototyping for XR can be a challenge. We will dive into this topic during our 14th meetup. Walter Giannuzzi, Arthur van Schravendijk (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences) and Donna Schipper (Leiden University) will share their vision and tips. They have a background in user experience design and development for Extended Reality in both commercial as well as educational environments.

Together they will kick off by sharing experiences and insights in their approach to prototyping in general and discuss tooling but will also open the floor to all of you. If you have any tactics, specific tools, or stories you would like to share, bring them to the meetup!
