Learn in a Virtual World
Virtual Reality means that the instructor and all students are virtually present in a private classroom at the Laval Virtual World. Our virtual classroom looks just like a physical seminar room. It features individual desks for students, a podium, plus multiple presentation screens. What's different is that your avatar is in the classroom on your behalf, while you are in the comfort of your home, anywhere in the world.
The classes are limited to a maximum of 15 participants in order to allow for one-on-one coaching during the hands-on exercises with BayesiaLab. This small-group format provides a productive yet informal learning environment that facilitates a lively dialogue between participants from a wide range of backgrounds.
No More Squinting at Slides
You see and hear everything in the classroom. You have a perfectly clear view of the presentation screen, able to zoom in to see all details. So, there is no more tinkering with room lights and projector focus, and no one can obscure your view.
The same applies to acoustics. Your audio is perfect, and you can clearly hear what everyone says—even the guy in the far corner of the room with a really soft voice. Also, you can speak with individuals, address the whole class, or privately ask questions.
And, the technology requirements are straightforward. All you need is a computer with a headset and microphone. You won't even need a camera, as your customizable avatar is your public persona in our virtual world.
Also, you can share the screen of your local computer, so the instructor can "look over your shoulder" and coach you through the exercises with BayesiaLab.
