  • Content

    Learn how to make VR and how to facilitate the development of VR productions. You will work on real-life cases from large Danish companies

    In the #VRSummerSchool course, you will work closely with VR and AR in practice and become a Master of Reality. As a participant, you will get to choose between real business cases from LEGO and The Royal House using the VR/AR technologies. You will work on these business cases in groups. Working in groups, you will be able to unleash your own unique set of skills. During the three weeks, you will learn how to make VR in Unity, where you will be divided into three levels of difficulty depending on your existing skills (so you will fit right in). You will also learn how to facilitate the development of VR productions. Additionally, several guest lecturers from XR (Extended Reality) companies will talk with each group about what it is like to work professionally with XR technologies and what the next big thing will be.

    As an added bonus, you will visit EON Reality’s Interactive Digital Center in Viborg, where you will have the chance to try state-of-the-art technologies within the realm of XR and experience the longest living player in the field.

    #VRSummerSchool will be concluded with an exhibition, at which each group will present their VR project.

    All groups will have access to VR setups during the Summer School.
    Ownership of intellectual properties will vary from case to case.
