Easier collaboration and knowledge sharing
The Metaverse promises to refashion the way that research collaboration is conducted. Karsten tells us that the traditional way for many students to showcase their research to partners is via a standard Powerpoint or a PDF file. But why not invite them into the Metaverse instead, poses Karsten? You are able to create a more immersive, interactive experience that really brings students’ research to life.
Going forward, all students working on projects at the Accelerator will have a digital copy of their work stored in the Stibo Systems Metaverse, with the goal of increasing student collaboration and knowledge sharing.
Randi tells us they have developed a similar program based out of Stibo Systems’ Atlanta office. While the Accelerator has partnerships with Georgia Tech, Kennesaw State, and Georgia State Universities, “combining students’ schedules with the notorious Atlanta traffic makes physical meetings incredibly difficult,” she says. A number of online students from Georgia Tech are currently working on a case from Stibo Systems. And in the future, the plan is to use the metaverse to onboard online students who are potentially based all over the world.
Therefore, meeting in the Metaverse makes perfect sense. It enables students to be able to collaborate on projects without having to travel and lets them share their work with other students in Denmark.
But why stop there? With the limitless potential of a Metaverse, there is always the possibility to invite students, institutions, and companies wherever they are based, says Karsten.
