Digital Human Library creates opportunities for all higher education students to explore the world’s largest collection of educational multimedia virtual tours and virtual reality on the web. VR can take a reader inside a book or on a tour through a museum, provide a new perspective on an historical event, and introduce learners to new people, places, and ideas from around the world. The unique qualities of virtual reality (VR) such as immersion and interactivity make VR a highly sought after resource in today’s higher education institutions.
Higher education students can also learn Indigenous culture and experience Indigenous storytelling guided by authentic Indigenous authored learning materials that follow a more Indigenous way of teaching and learning.
Bachelor of Education students have the unique opportunity to learn with North America’s largest network of industry professionals by connecting practicum classes with subject matter Experts for thousands of interactive 1:1 video conferences supported by over 1800 educational virtual tours and virtual reality experiences. Our community of Experts and virtual content are sourced by teachers for teachers based on teacher requests to support youth and learning.
