CEL at the Service Excellence Conference 2016

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:
