Students Craft Meaningful Narratives Using the Latest in Technology

An exciting new course titled Augmented Reality for Media and Gaming (CAGD/JOUR/MADT 398) launched this semester. Taught across three departments and two colleges students use the latest in technology to tell stories using augmented and virtual reality.

Working in teams, students in Media Arts, Design &Technology, Journalism & Public Relations, and Computer Animation & Game Development programs tell narrative stories that require use of Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Daydream, and HoloLens devices. Alumni, donors, and departments provide the devices and are shared so each student can experience the differing capabilities.
