The Virtuelle Hochschule Bayern (vhb), as a network of 31 universities in Bavaria had the idea of sharing and linking digital teaching. They promote and support the development of digital learning units and specifically support exchange and usage on an interuniversity basis.

With OPEN vhb, they enable many other interested people to take a look into the virtual shop window of university lectures in Bavaria and to acquire knowledge at a university level. The courses can be utilised by everyone. You do not need to be enrolled at a university.

There is an Educators in VR meeting in AltspaceVR that gives you insights into the recent research about bringing AR and VR into the classical classroom in schools.

According to Kristina Bucher, professor of school pedagogy, currently teachers still struggle with the use of the new technologies. 

Teachers need to be supported how to teach in VR. 

Kristina Bucher has created an analysis where AR and VR brings an add-on to the classical teaching process. 

The next Educators in VR meeting in AltspaceVR takes place on 18th July 2019. Marie Graham, Director of VR/AR at the Mount Vernon Presbyterian School, Atlanta, Georgia, will be presenting “Immersive Realities, Design Thinking, and Students Using Technology for Good.
