FAQs

Jumpstart Minis are short, bite-sized hands-on workshops for learning and discovering immersive technology such as augmented, virtual or mixed reality (XR), and 360 VR. There are also workshops on designing for immersive tech.
Jumpstart Minis are open to all current NUS students and staff with a valid NUSNET account who are entry-level or immersive technology freshies. :)

You get to discover immersive technology and learn some introductory skills on how to develop your own immersive tech experience. You can also get input from us as you create your own immersive tech output.

 

Jumpstart Minis is also one of the first programs in NUS Libraries to roll out digital badges, in which a successful completion of a session earns you a digital badge that you can display online! More on the badges here.

Jumpstart Minis will be conducted live via Microsoft Teams.

The designated instructor will be using PowerPoint slides and/or demos to show how the tools can be used, and participants can watch, follow and/or ask questions through the chat function in Microsoft Teams. These chats will stay on in the Microsoft Teams even after the workshop has ended so the learning can continue.

Each session is designed to last between 1-2 hours, hence it is called a Mini!
Each session will be limited to 50-150 participants to manage the online hands-on experience.

You need:

  • A valid NUSNET account for students or staff
  • A good Internet connection to join the online meeting
  • A laptop/desktop, no mobile phones please
  • Curiosity and an open mind to learning about immersive tech!
