Arizona State University: ASU Online biology course is first to offer virtual-reality lab in Google partnership

Arizona State University: ASU Online biology course is first to offer virtual-reality lab in Google partnership. “Students in general biology classes usually don’t get to take blood samples from people, but an online class at Arizona State University not only lets students draw blood, they also can manipulate DNA — all in virtual reality. Thirty students in the general biology course under way now are using virtual-reality headsets to complete their lab requirement as part of a new partnership among ASU Online, Google and Labster. In total, 140 pairs of headsets will be available for students to borrow for the next round of classes starting in October.”
