VR for Teaching (Free for all Faculty/Staff at UW)
In the spring of 2019, the Makerspace started a 1-year pilot program with the Provost’s Office wherein any faculty or staff member at UW-Madison may check-out up to 20 Oculus Go headsets for teaching from the Kohler Visualization Lab.
If you’d like to reserve one or more headset(s) for your class, please make a reservation online here.
- There is no cost to the instructor.
- Only the Oculus Go headsets are part of this pilot program. Other Kohler Vis Lab AR/VR equipment requires an M-Pass or CoE Shop Permit.
- The Makerspace student staff provide basic technical support.
- This is only for faculty/staff at UW and not for students or student orgs.
