The award-winning Meta Lab uses emerging digital technology in innovative ways to create transformational educational experiences.

Come and meet Lab Director, Dr Chris Macdonald, and experience a pioneering VR Public Speaking project.

On the new platform, students can steadily build resilience through a self-paced gamified journey where the virtual ‘audience’ increases as tasks are completed. The platform leverages the massive potential of virtual reality exposure therapy.

The concept originated in response to the fact those who would benefit the most from developing public speaking skills are the least likely to sign up for in-person presenting opportunities. A more approachable entry point combined with a gamified journey is highly impactful for those currently left out. Try a quick demo and learn how to access the platform for free from the comfort of your own home!
