The Centre for Excellence in Learning (CEL) played an active role during yesterday’s Service Excellence Conference 2016 by hosting a fun session with technology in PG30a. During the afternoon session facilitated by Debbie Holley and other technology experts, several participants had a thrilling experience with Oculus Rift, Virtual Reality Glasses, Google Cardboard, Augmented Reality and Virtual Roller-coasting.
Feedbacks from the session were very encouraging and some of them highlighted how some of the technologies could be used to improve some services in BU:
“Can post these out with welcome packs to enhance campus tours and pre arrival information”
“This is the type of thing we need – more often students will love it”
“Virtual reality – great for collaborative projects and education”
“Playing with virtual reality glasses is so fun! Would love to learn more”
“I just love what CEL is doing – it isn’t just for academic activities. All of BU would benefit from your talents”
“Oculus rift – wow!!
“A brilliant way to experience open days for those who can’t come, especially our international students”
“Fun Rollercoaster Ride. Could be a great idea for accommodation promos”
“Amazing!! What a fab idea”
“Virtual reality was amazing”
“Loved going on the roller coaster – backwards as well!”
“Brilliant and innovative way to explore technology in HE”
“Very innovative, plan to use in the future”
“Could be a great use for videos of accommodation for future students, especially international students – they can virtually walk through the halls of residence”
“Amazing experience! Must try!”
