FACULTY & STUDENTS SHARE SHOWCASE SUCCESSES
"I teach an Interactive Studio within a Visual Studies focus in the Department of Visual & Media Arts. Beyond the latest buzzwords and methodologies in user experience (UX) design, we are constantly asking: 'What does it mean to facilitate another person's experience? How do the choice we make in an interactive artwork best serve our intentions for it?' As part of the class, I bring the students to the Atomic Object Technology Showcase, to let them see what sorts of technologies are available. Then, they have to create an hour-long experience meant to engage the population in the library, using those technologies.
Students have created games, scavenger hunts, and alternate
VR experiences within the Library space. I'm looking forward to a
workshop later in the semester with Hunter Bridwell, eLearning
digital media developer, where students will learn about developing
content for the Microsoft HoloLens."
