Immersive educational experiences

UCAM professors and students have been working on research projects on the metaverse, developing new ways of interacting in virtual worlds and creating tools to improve the user experience in these environments. In addition, the University is collaborating with leading technology companies to apply this research and development to actual products and services. These collaborations help ensure that advances in the metaverse are available for application in a wide variety of fields, from entertainment to education to medicine.

UCAM plays an important role in metaverse research and development, especially in educational applications. In the last two years, more than 2,650 of its students have already had immersive educational experiences and more than 228 hours of teaching have been generated in the metaverse. The potential of this technology to improve the teaching experience is very important and key to the digital transformation strategy of UCAM.
