Welcome to the UNC AR/VR Interest Group website.
The UNC Augmented and Virtual Reality Interest Group includes over 250 people from all across campus, including faculty, students, and staff from just about every department at UNC Chapel Hill, and then some. Our goal is to promote innovative teaching and learning, research, training, clinical care, and entrepreneurship through the use of immersive technologies.
In addition to the larger, general group, we are also putting together two more focused groups for those interested in AR/VR at UNC: a faculty group, and a student group. If you are interested in joining either group, let us know.
The UNC Libraries provide students, staff, and faculty guidance in learning about XR in education. Interested in a demo of the Merge Cube or would like to use XR in your class, please contact Lynn Eades to set up a consultation.
