As part of our new DELTA Explores series, we’re sharing how we research, test and explore the latest in immersive technology and its role in teaching and learning — how we Think before we Do.

In the latest post linked below, Immersive Media Support Specialist Justin Kuhn shares how virtual reality with spatial audio creates real-life virtual experiences.

Read Kuhn’s full blog for a look into a project on virtual training for educators.

“This exploratory project was also a pilot for future immersive videos because much the technology that we exercised had only existed in silos; this is the first time we were combining stereoscopy, 3rd-order ambisonics, custom Unity rendering, and experimental video formats all in one project,” Kuhn says.

Feel free to share your thoughts with us! We’d love to connect with you on Twitter at @NCStateDELTA or by email at
