We kick off our new season of LLChat with a series dedicated to the use of Virtual Reality for languages and cultures. We discuss the use of the ImmerseMe tool with Anne Cluff. She majors in Computer Science and studies French at Old Dominion University. Our host for this episode is Alexis Osipovs.
Faculty in the Department of World Languages explore the use of Virtual Reality to learn French. With the support from the ODU Center for High Impact Practices and the HIP-XR Grant, the ImmerseMe tool was integrated into a novice-level French course during the spring 2021 semester. This unique project aligns the curricular concepts and themes discussed in class with the authentic scenarios using the ImmerseMe tool for asynchronous learning.
