Introduction to Kvasir-VR: Remotely-Guided VR Field Trips

The Kvasir-VR Project is developing educational networked virtual reality technology, bringing it to schools, and working with students to integrate their own VR scenes. Students wearing VR headsets are guided through virtual field trips by live teacher imagery from a 3D camera (Kinect V2). A high school group will also gain VR design experience by creating their own virtual reality scenes, which we will view with Kvasir-VR.

The current project team members include Dr. Christoph Borst (UL Lafayette Professor, Project lead), Nicolette Darjean (DTSMA Engineering Academy Educator, Project lead), Jason Woodworth and Nicholas Lipari (UL Lafayette Graduate Students), Paul Smith (UL Lafayette Undergraduate Research Student), and Adam Prejean (UL Lafayette Computer Graphics Artist).
