Welcome To AR/VR/360 MEDIA
The fields of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and 360° media development—collectively known as immersive technology—are growing rapidly.
This undergraduate, multidisciplinary, and project-focused course focuses on the development of new applications for this emerging field. This website serves as the online archive of the student projects.
The Challenge: A Virtual Reality Tour of JMU’s Campus
In 2017, students from 10 different majors began designing and building a virtual reality tour of JMU’s campus using the latest technology in 360° media and VR. Students are incorporating videography, coding and user experience design to develop “Experience JMU 360: A Virtual Tour”. In partnership with the JMU Office of Admissions and University Communications & Marketing, the tour is now part of a recruitment exhibit in the newly renovated Madison Hall Admissions Building.
