Lethbridge launches VR book club

January 11, 2019

Lethbridge College has established a VR book club that invites participants from all over the world to take part, reports the Lethbridge Herald. “We already have more than 70 people from six continents signed up for the first session,” said Multimedia Production instructor Mike McCready. “Our discussions will be hosted by the AltspaceVR virtual reality platform, which means anyone with access to VR can join through an interactive environment. But even if you don’t have VR capabilities, you can still watch and discuss through your computer or mobile device, so it really is open to everyone.” The Herald adds that Lethbridge has also incorporated VR into its Production, Digital Communications and Media, Interior Design Technology, Wind Turbine Technology, and health programs. Lethbridge Herald (AB)
