Lethbridge College has partnered with Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc on a new work-integrated learning opportunity that is set in a metaverse. Students in Lethbridge’s Interior Design Technology, Virtual and Augmented Reality, and Architectural Animation Technology programs will have the opportunity to acquire virtual land on within Liquid Avatar Technologies’ Aftermath Islands Metaverse. They can create structures, develop businesses, and complete transactions in the virtual world, with all assets they create remaining their property. Lethbridge will have virtual land on which they will host virtual events, learning, and other services. “Our students will learn so much about entrepreneurship and building in the metaverse and will gain a much greater understanding of digital space and digital identity while these worlds evolve and grow,” said Lethbridge Chair of Spatial Design Technologies Cherie Bowker.
