MITH Digital Dialogue: Lisa M. Snyder, "A Conversation about Compulsion, the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893, and Virtual Reality"

Is there a place for virtual reality in the digital humanities toolkit? For all of the early hype surrounding the use virtual reality for teaching and learning and the ubiquity of online options for exploring three-dimensional worlds, the challenges inherent in developing and sustaining large-scale academic reconstruction projects limit their viability and likelihood for success. Following a demonstration of the Worlds Columbian Exposition project currently under construction, Snyder will discuss her project teams efforts to leverage existing and new computer modeling work for pedagogical use. Dr. Lisa M. Snyder is a senior member of the Urban Simulation Team at UCLA, an associate director of the Experiential Technologies Center, and on staff with the Institute for Digital Research and Education, a division of UCLAs Office of Information Technology. Her research is focused on the educational use of large-scale interactive computer reconstructions of historic urban environments. {Will appear in FYI on Mar 12, 2012
