The SEIT Research Laboratory (Software Engineering and Internet Technologies Laboratory) of the Computer Science department of the University of Cyprus participates in “ALIVE: Make Biology Fun with Virtual Reality” Erasmus+ project.
The ALIVE project provides a solution that combines the benefits of online education with traditional face to face classroom teaching in the Biology subject area. Through virtual reality and the 3D world, it will enable the teacher to conduct distance learning – in virtual reality – but at the same time to be in direct contact with their pupils as if they were in their own classroom.
UCY participates in the project via the SEIT and Bioinformatics Research Laboratories. The main contributions of UCY are in the design of curriculum and innovative learning material for Biology and in the design and development of the 3D Virtual World Educational Platform
