Unleashing the Potential of the Metaverse in Education
Talk Description :
In this keynote session, we will explore the concept of the Metaverse and its potential to revolutionize the way we think about Education.
The Metaverse is a virtual world shared by multiple users and created by combining multiple virtual reality, augmented reality, and digital environments.
It has the potential to provide immersive and interactive learning experiences that are not possible in the physical world.
During this session, we will also examine the challenges and opportunities of integrating the Metaverse into the educational landscape and how Fectar enables access to immersive experiences and content development.
