Virtual Way Forward: Exploring and communicating science through 360 video and virtual reality programs​
Virtual Conference

The advent of affordable home virtual reality systems has led to a new wave of immersive experiences for learning. Virtual reality and 360° video present many opportunities for those promoting the sciences. Virtual reality can help users visualize data and resize objects to a human-sized scale, simulate events, immerse themselves in virtual field trips, and interact with earth systems virtually. This presentation will help orient librarians to the existing landscape and language of virtual reality, especially as distance learning creates new challenges and possibilities for immersive experiences.

Elise Gowen is the Earth and Mineral Sciences Librarian at Penn State University. She holds a Master of Library and Information Science from the University of British Columbia and previously worked as the Earth and Environmental Sciences Librarian at University of Colorado Boulder. Her research interests include virtual reality, science communication, and open access.
