Virtual reality (VR) is often in the news today, but is it just a gimmick? Is it being used effectively in liberal arts colleges, in museums and at heritage sites? Three panelists will discuss their experiences, challenges and hopes for VR within their fields. What kind of careers does VR offer in this area? Then, they will open the floor for questions from the audience. Register for the event here
