Project showcase from Bernhard's "immersive environments" course (IAT445, Friday June 20th, 2014)

On Friday June 20th, the stu­dents from the “immer­sive envi­ron­ments” course (IAT 445) will be pre­sent­ing their final projects in the Mezzanine on our SFU Surrey campus, from about 10:30am — 2:30pm.

10 Teams will show­case their own immer­sive Virtual Reality projects that they devel­oped in the pop­u­lar game engine Unity3D and will present on immer­sive view­ing setups that they designed themselves.

This semester’s design chal­lenge for stu­dents was relax­ation and stress-reduction: “Use unity3D and guid­ing frame­works to iter­a­tively ideate, design, pro­to­type, and eval­u­ate an immer­sive project that helps to relax and de-stress it’s users (incl. stu­dents like your­selves or SFU faculty/staff).” So be pre­pared for some excit­ing (and maybe even relax­ing?) showcases!



In case you can’t make it to the inter­ac­tive project show­case on the Mezzanine on Friday, you can still join the public project video pre­sen­ta­tion ses­sion on Tuesday June 24th, in Surrey room #2600 (the large theatre).

See SFU’s Teaching & Learning blog for a news story on this course from Spring 2013, enti­tled: “How a SIAT course in immer­sive envi­ron­ments exposed stu­dents to the real world”. See my teach­ing page and SFU media release for more infos. The redesign of the 2013 offer­ing of the course was sup­ported by a Teaching and Learning Development Grant and invalu­able ongo­ing assis­tance by edu­ca­tional con­sul­tant Barb Berry.
