ECIU XR Campus Opening - new virtual reality environment for learning
ECIU XR Campus is ECIU University in virtual reality. It is an environment which can be accessed from anywhere and anytime to be fully immersed into interaction and co-creation together with others. ECIU XR Campus provides instant collaboration opportunities for the ECIU University community throughout Europe. Tampere University has led the development work together with XR Studio Zoan.
ECIU University will change the way of delivering higher education by its ground-breaking and innovative education model. ECIU University is formed by 12 European universities known for their entrepreneurial mindset and their willingness to give back to the society. Together learners, alumni, teachers, researchers, enterprises, NGOs, public stakeholders and citizens solve wicked multi-disciplinary challenges in the spirit of continuous learning. The aim is to transform traditional degree-based education into challenge-based. The XR Campus will be a tool for working with stakeholders and challenge-based education, together with colleagues from all over Europe. This pilot shows that the future of European collaboration in higher education is all about connecting our campuses and their communities.
