Morehouse College Offering Virtual Reality Classes

Morehouse College is proud to announce the creation of its first Virtual Reality (VR) classes in a partnership with VictoryXR. This partnership is the latest innovation in academic offerings in the ‘Morehouse Beyond Borders’ portion of President David Thomas’ strategic plan for the school.

Morehouse is teaching three classes in VR using the Victory XR platform (based on Engage), with support from Qualcomm, which provided an Oculus Quest 2 to students. The Quest utilizes the Qualcomm’s XR2 chip set, as does every other mobile VR headset with the exception of Magic Leap (for now). Using this headset, remote students meet on a virtual Morehouse campus to attend their virtual classes.

The first three classes to be taught on the digital twin VR campus will be Biology 105 focusing on men’s health, History 112, world history and inorganic chemistry.
