Virtual Reality is expected to be widely used in education within the next 5 years (2018 NMC Horizon Report). To prepare for that, we organized the VR Hub – the place to start your journey to integrating VR in education. 80% of our community are students, 10% teachers/researchers, and the remaining 10% come from the VR field outside Aalto University. Everyone is welcome to join!

We offer: 

  • Premises and equipment at the Learning Center in Otaniemi
  • Weekly themed training sessions and consultations available to students, teachers, and general public free of charge
  • Tutor/service personnel available by appointment, especially to Aalto University teachers

Platforms and tools

HTC Vive, Steam

Pedagogical methods
