The last day before the summer break is approaching and we are looking forward to your presence and the exchange on the topic of virtual learning platforms: Collaborators at Bauhaus University Weimar have been exploring how virtual platforms Topia and WorkAdventure can enhance teaching and learning. These platforms, inspired by the Metaverse, provide opportunities for communication through immersive worlds and customisable avatars. We created adaptable templates based on the Hybrides.Lernatelier of Amalienstrasse 13, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and invited university teachers to develop and test scenarios for their students. In this talk, they will present the results so far, discuss the usability and adaptability of the platforms, and explain how teachers can be supported in using Topia and WorkAdventure. We cordially invite all instructors to learn more about virtual platforms such as Topia and WorkAdventure and to test our improved templates for Topia and WorkAdventure with students. Your experiences and feedback will help us test the possibilities of these virtual platforms in a university context.
We will discuss with Sophie Foster, Elodi Vittu, Martina Jakobi and other experts about the possibilities and development processes of virtual learning platforms: on July 6, 2023, from 1 to 2 pm, online or on site. More info at www.eteach-thueringen.de/talks
