OER Immersive Multimedia Materials Project

 The OER-Immersive Multimedia Materials Project project aims at the design and development of Open Educational Resources (OER) in the classroom as a model to integrate community-based learning and undergraduate research in lower and upper-level courses of the Spanish Program at UNF. It specifically involves the design of immersive educational materials with a focus on Virtual Reality and reading accessibility. The adaptability of digital technology becomes a key element of our project within the context of the emergence of new learning modalities that place equity and inclusion at the center stage of educational innovation. This project is associated with “Accessible Classics: Digital Adaptations for People with Reading Difficulties”.
