VALDOSTA — Imagine learning in 3D about the heart or pulmonary functions of the body. Seeing the procedures come to life in front of you without being in a clinical setting is now a reality. Wiregrass Georgia Technical College has introduced 3D AVRover technology to classroom instruction. The 3D AVRover is an amazing technology that allows instructors to engage students in learning early on in their programs. Training modules are available in a variety of subjects that include 3D videos, interactive objects, and virtual simulations that can be integrated into the course curriculum to enhance lessons by bringing the topics to life. The 3D AVRover is versatile and can be used to support the needs of all types of learners.

“By investing in the 3D AVRover systems, Wiregrass is committed to providing our faculty with tools they can use to improve the quality of instruction while giving students access to technology they need to meet the demands of the 21st century workplace,” shared Marsha Dukes, Center of Excellence director. Some of the categories of learning content include; physical science, life science, earth and space science, science in personal and social perspectives, and math.

Esthetics Program Coordinator and Instructor Kelly Ramirez shared, “I use the 3D Rover to teach Anatomy and Physiology as well as Skin Histology. Having the images pop off the screen gives students a better understanding of the subject matter through visual 3D images. Students are testing better in these areas as a result, and that makes them happy and their instructor happy! My students love the 3D Rover and always comment how appreciative they are to have this technology available to facilitate a better learning experience.”

Wiregrass is currently accepting new students for Summer Semester. Applicants can take advantage of Free Application Day on April 2 where the college waives the application fee. Summer Semester starts May 18. For more information visit wiregrass.edu.
