XR Initiative

Educational Innovation through Extended Reality Initiative (XRI)

Collaborating units have created the XR Initiative to showcase a series of presentations, demonstrations, and tours across campus to share innovative technologies with faculty, staff, and students. The XR Initiative launched with a half-day event that highlighted extended reality technologies such as the Oculus Quest VR headsets, the MERGE Cube, Google Cardboard VR Glasses, and more.

The XR Initiative is a collaboration among multiple units that will be developing future programming highlighting innovative technologies available for use in teaching and learning.  This initiative hopes to inspire faculty to develop and implement course activities using these types of activities as well as informing students about how they can use these emerging technologies to enhance their studies at IU and inspire their future careers.

Check this website regularly for updated workshops and webinars that will be offered during the 2021-2022 academic year.

Congratulations to our three winners of the Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset drawing that was held at the end of the XRI Launch Event!
