Qatar University makes historic first step into the metaverse #TOGRP7 #MimeXMime

Qatar University made history by becoming the first university to enter the metaverse— a fictitious version of the internet that functions as a single, ubiquitous and immersive virtual environment. The metaverse, dubbed as the future of interactions, is enabled by virtual reality and augmented reality headgear.

The latest move was made possible through signing a memorandum of understanding with Metavisionaries —a community of change agents, thought leaders, and business experts committed to extending access to the space economy and cutting-edge technology in order to address present and future sustainability challenges. “The pandemic accelerated the rate of technology adoption in the education sector. Web 3.0 and the Metaverse are paving the way for education to be reimagined,” said Wasim Ahmed, CEO for Metavisionaries.
