Thommy Eriksson: Research on Mozilla Hubs

Educators in VR Researchers


Join us for this week’s guest speaker: Thommy is a researcher at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, specializing in Applied IT and Digital Representation. He’ll discuss the results of a longitudinal study (one year, about 40 meetings) with university student supervision in Mozilla Hubs. This will include advantages and disadvantages with Hubs, as well as phenomenological observations about emotional experience of meeting students so many times in VR.

The Educators in VR Research Team features researchers from across the spectrum of VR/AR/XR research and development, coming together to share their knowledge, techniques, and research and learn from each other. Join us to discuss the possibilities and potential of research in VR. We host regular meetups and workshops for discussion and learning. If you would like to join the discussion, please join our Educators in VR Discord for Research
