ALL they had to do was look into the virtual reality headset and visitors at the SEGi College Penang booth at the Star Education Fair were transported to its technology laboratory at another location.
School of Information Technology programme head Edward Low Rong Quan said the virtual reality goggles provided a 360-degree view of the lab in Green Hall, George Town.
“We are looking into applying this technology in our programme modules for the Diploma in Information Technology.
“Before doing so, we want the students and visitors to experience the goggles and give us their feedback.
The course is among 20 other varied courses being offered at the private institution.
Over 200 local and international educational institutions occupied more than 230 booths at the fair, offering study and funding options as well as career prospects to a successful future.
Deemed as Malaysia’s one-stop premier education exhibition, the fair offered a wide range of choices from pre-university to diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate levels and also professional and vocational courses.
The two-day fair was organised by i.Star Events Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Star Media Group.
