Virtual Reality Relics
How can 21st Century technology enhance the way we engage with relics of the past?
Dr Claire Bailey-Ross explains how virtual, augmented and extended reality techniques are enhancing our learning experiences in museums, galleries and online in this episode of Life Solved.
From virtually exploring the culture of UK cities to immersive experiences of wartime history and former nightclubs, the projects Claire works on in her digital heritage role are diverse!
She explains how colleagues at the Centre for Creative and Immersive Extended Reality at the University of Portsmouth are helping make the stuff of history books new, current and exciting for new generations of learners.
Claire also thinks that technology will be key in securing the futures of museums and heritage institutions, so that they can continue to educate and engage people for years to come.
