Microsoft Hololens – CTAT Collaborates with EMS Program to Provide Immersive Instruction for Students

The Center for Teaching Arts and Technology (CTAT) and EMS Program have been in the spotlight recently for providing students with an immersive experience in the classroom. The Microsoft Hololens is essentially a holographic computer built into a headset that lets you see, hear, and interact with digital content and holograms within an environment. Watch the  WVLT special newscast with anchor, Chynna Greene, and see how Roane State faculty members are becoming pioneers in the world of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality.
