The Professional Certificate in Immersive Learning has opened a new door for me, revealing a new world of educational tools that are going to become fundamental in the years ahead. I've gained invaluable insights and skills that empower me to embrace these tools, such as 360 interactive videos, simulations, metaverse, and avatars. It's only the beginning but I am excited to be at the forefront of this educational transformation, ready to create more inclusive and effective learning environments that benefit all students. I look forward to sharing my newfound knowledge and passion not only with the students but colleagues, helping to shape a brighter future for education.

Really enjoyed the Professional Certificate in Immersive Learning, it's given me a lot to think about more than a traditional instructional design and learning project as things like ambisonic sounds nadir require much more planning and attention to detail that provide that extra quality factor when it comes to an immersive resource.


David Brechin-Smith

Completing the Professional Certificate in Immersive Learning was a truly positive experience that made me feel smarter and inspired! It's given me more confidence to experiment with and use new and emerging technology that can be applied to digital learning design. I wouldn't know nearly as much about the possibilities of immersive learning tech if I hadn't taken the course.


Michelle McGregor

The Professional Certificate in Immersive Learning was a fantastic experience. There's been quite a lot of development in the field and the course opened my eyes to the potential of it. I remember when Pokemon Go came out and had its viral moment where everyone was playing it. At the time, I thought it more a gimmick than a serious trend, but it looks like AR is here to stay.

As someone who has already created a metaverse gallery from scratch filled with my NFT Artwork, the Professional Certificate in Immersive Learning has been very informative and gave me new inpulses and insights for an immersive learning project.

Graeme Brown

I found the Professional Certificate in Immersive Learning very interesting and thought provoking. When using the 360 video to produce a resource from considering which perspective to film from point of view or observational. It also highlighted a few areas I might want to expand upon in our next project.
