Visualization & Virtual Reality

Visualization

Level 1 of the Davis Global Center will feature 3D, holographic, and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) technology to enhance education by providing unique experiential learning opportunities. Research will also be transformed using new methods to explore a variety of subjects. Learning environments housed within this level will include technology such as 3D CADWalls, 2D interactive digital iWalls, a holographic theater, head-mounted displays, the first of its kind 5-sided laser-based immersive environment (iSpace) and the 270 degree 2D iEXCEL Helix. 

Content development is key. iEXCEL's visualization team, staffed by expert designers, developers and animators, work to develop high quality content and innovate in a prototype called the iEXCEL Visualization Hub.


IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING VIZHUB ACTIVITIES:

 
In mid-July, the Interprofessional Experiential Center for Enduring Learning (iEXCEL) will be moving into the Dr. Edwin G. and Dorothy Balbach Davis Global Center. This involves relocating staff, technology and equipment from three different locations, including the iEXCEL Visualization Hub, currently in the Sorrell Center, Room 1012.

 

To ensure a successful move, it will be necessary to permanently close down the iEXCEL Visualization Hub (VizHub) beginning July 1. This includes removing availability for meetings, tours, demonstrations and educational events that typically take place in the VizHub.

Academic activities can resume in the Davis Global Center on Sept. 30, following the grand opening events scheduled during the week of Sept. 23. 

If you have questions or special VIP requests during this period, please do not hesitate to reach out to:

"We apologize for this inconvenience, and thank you very much for your patience and understanding as iEXCEL makes the transition to the Davis Global Center," said Pamela Boyers, Ph.D., associate vice chancellor, clinical simulation, iEXCEL.
