starherald | November 23, 2019

Virtual Reality (VR), the technology that allows a person to figuratively step into and explore a computer created three-dimensional world that can feel completely real, has made its debut in the King Library Learning Commons at Chadron State College. CSC’s first venture into VR has both educational and recreational value for students, and is one of several efforts underway at the library’s tutoring center to provide innovative educational opportunities for students, said Tom Tylee, Director of the Office of Academic Success. The suite of technology applications available at the tutoring center and the Richards Media Lab includes digital systems for producing music and graphic design work, an internet-connected, touchscreen smart board for group work, and a small studio that can be used for live video interactions with online students or to create instructional videos for classes.
