U-M Teach-Out on AR/MR/VR

Michael Nebeling and colleagues from U-M’s School of Information and the STAMPS School of Art and Design have put together a U-M Teach-Out on Augmented, Virtual, and Mixed Reality. The teach-out will be delivered in the form of an open-enrollment course on Coursera for free titled Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Mixed Reality: Opportunities and Issues.

The course is a combination of discussion rounds, virtual lab tours, and an overview of relevant research and teaching at U-M. After one lecture introducing the different terminologies and technologies, the course features a series of discussions and expert panels on why these topics are extremely important and timely to talk about, and explores the impact on research and teaching as well as our daily lives, in a number of different domains, ranging from medicine and nursing, to landscaping and architectural design, to multimedia and entertainment.

We had a lot of fun creating this course and we hope you will be able to join us and participate in the discussion forums!
