The course is not a traditional course. You will meet weekly with Dr. Benjamin Lok to discuss progress.
The CAP4930/6930 Virtual Reality (VR) for the Social Good is a special topics course that will have students form teams, learn the basics of VR, and develop VR projects.
Who is this Course for
This course is for students of any level (CAP4930 is for freshmen through seniors, CAP6930 is for graduate students) and for any major (including computer science, art, english, journalism, and the subject matter of the project).
What is this course
VR for the Social Good is primarily for Gator VR members as they work on the group projects. The VR for Social Good course provides course credit while students learn basic VR content through student generated lessons (first six weeks) and to work to on a final semester project (remaining eight weeks). The final semester project should apply virtual reality to address an issue of significant social importance. As an example of social goals, the United Nations has a list of sustainable development goals.
Any Prior Virtual Reality Experience Needed?
No prior experience in virtual reality is required.
As the course is meant to support projects created through the GatorVR student group, please join the GatorVR Facebook page and attend the remaining meetings of the group (the FB page notifies people about upcoming meetings).
