VITaL: The Future of Immersive Learning at SDSU

In Fall 2017, SDSU’s Instructional Technology Services (ITS) launched the Virtual Immersive Teaching and Learning (VITaL) initiative, providing a variety of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and 360º-video immersive tools for use across the SDSU pedagogical spectrum. Today, VITaL serves as an incubator to enable experiences that would be out of reach—if not impossible—in a traditional learning environment, including low-frequency, high-risk scenarios simulating  life-threatening medical conditions, celestial events in outer space, and scientific phenomena occurring at the micro scale. Through a new Learning Research Studio (LRS), located in Adams Humanities (AH-1120), VITaL promotes experimentation with curriculum design and the scholarship of teaching and learning in a flexible learning environment.
