Class 3, Homework 1: Immersive Libraries and Museums
Libraries and Museums TWG is working on combining resources and putting them into an accessible multimedia interface. It allows students to be more interactive with the material and also with other classmates. There is more cooperation amongst students. Libraries and Museums TWG also make educational experiences more enjoyable. They are able to take content and translate into a way that is more relevant to the user.
Communications has also been greatly improved. Technology has been part of the workplace for quite some time now. But communication has been stuck in the past with people using email and phone. This greatly limits accessibility to one another. Now people can converse, in groups as well, in online meeting and virtual consultations.
Libraries and Museums TWG is good because it allows educators and students to learn beyond the physical state. It helps draw attention of students because LAM TWG uses 3D graphics, video game and simulation technology, virtual reality plus many more useful tools. This helps today’s generation of students learn because it is more relevant. Students are growing up a in a technological time. Its only makes sense that they learn that way.
The experience of online learning makes tools and services vastly more available. LAM TWG works towards maintaining an up to date library of research studies and professional papers. LAM TWG works with numerous sources and sites to make sure they have copious material.Allowing all this info at our fingertips greatly helps the students.
The online learning also helps cooperation between students.
