SPEED Receives HK$6.18M in Funding to Develop VR Systems for Business and Tourism Education
31 May 2022
SPEED received funding of HK$6.18 million from Self-financing Post-secondary Education Fund’s Quality Enhancement Support Scheme for implementing the project “Development of Virtual Reality (VR) Systems for Business and Tourism Education” from 2022 to 2023.
In order to enhance students’ motivation and deliver quality education in the digital era, there is a genuine need for students to enrich their interactive and immersive learning as well as to equip them with up-to-date knowledge of digital technologies. This theme-based project, a collaboration between SPEED and HKCC, aims to establish immersive VR systems with virtual and augmented reality simulations for all business and tourism students of SPEED and HKCC. The immersive VR systems create VR simulations which would enable students to learn their academic subjects in more interactive ways.
