What is the Metaverse? It has been variously described as the future of virtual and augmented reality; the 3D internet; and an online universe in which we will spend ever increasing amounts of time working, collaborating & playing. Design will play a critical role in figuring out every dimension of the Metaverse and will require close collaboration between the different design disciplines. In order to build proficiency for metaverse design, this class will follow three guiding principles: learning by doing, cross-department collaboration, and inviting experts into the classroom. Online learning and collaboration in a Covid world present difficult challenges. In this class, we will lean into those challenges since the Metaverse is inherently an online, virtual concept that will have to master these very same problems if it is to be effective.
