VLS Funding for XR Projects (XR Community of Practice session)Export this event to calendar

Friday, November 26, 2021 — 12:00 PM EST

Location: Online (MS Teams)


If you think an Extended Reality (XR) app or XR-based activity could enhance your students’ learning, join us on Friday, November 26 at 12:00 pm to find out how funding recently announced by the Ontario government can support such projects.

The funding is part of the government’s Virtual Learning Strategy (VLS), and it targets Extended Reality as one of four priority areas for the $8 million it’s making available.

The session, which is part of Waterloo’s XR Community of Practice, will run from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm on Friday, November 26 in MS Teams. The Centre for Extended Learning is coordinating Waterloo’s applications for the VLS funding, and CEL’s Dina Meuniere will be in attendance to provide an overview of the funding and to respond to questions. It attendees are interested, time will also be allotted to discuss prospective projects in small groups.

If you've never attended a session of the XR Community of Practice, you're welcome and encouraged to join us! Also, if you'd like to join the Waterloo XR Community of Practice group in MS Teams, just email Mark Morton at mmorton@uwaterloo.ca
