In collaboration with the Division of Information Technology’s XR Lab, Dr. DiMarzio and Dr. Gebre each successfully piloted the use of XR technology in one of their courses, with a combined total of more than 120 students. Watch the recording to learn about the impact of XR technology on student learning, as well as best practices and recommendations for using immersive technologies in instruction.

What is the XR Lab?

The XR Lab connects augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), mixed reality (MR), and 360-degree video resources on Stevens’ campus. 

The goal of the XR Lab is to encourage participants from all fields of study to explore the technology the Lab has to offer. The aim of the Lab is to explore how extended reality can support learning, research, and other pedagogical and curricular goals by bringing together people, technology, resources, and space. 

The Stevens XR Lab aims promote the use of extended reality (AR, VR, MR, and 360-degree video) in learning and research. Students and faculty new to extended reality can come to the Lab to experience the technology, while those familiar with it may book lab space to work on projects.
