Lethbridge College’s Centre for Technology, Environment and Design has announced it is partnering with Liquid Avatar Technologies, a publicly-traded global blockchain and fintech solutions firm, to launch a work-integrated learning opportunity that will allow students to occupy property in the metaverse.
Liquid Avatar Technologies is providing 9,000 plots of land within its Aftermath Islands Metaverse
Liquid Avatar Technologies will provide 9,000 plots of land in its Aftermath Islands Metaverse — a network of areas where users may construct a virtual world parallel to their actual one – as part of the agreement. By the conclusion of the winter 2022 semester, students will be participating in the new curriculum and mentoring opportunities.
Students in Interior Design Technology, Virtual and Augmented Reality and Architectural Animation Technology programs will “build” on the virtual island – constructing structures and companies and conducting transactions. Each pupil will be given a virtual piece of land.
For as long as they choose, the land and all of the things they produce for it will be their own. According to Lethbridge Institution, the college will also have a considerable amount of virtual land to allow it to deliver virtual events, learning, and other services to students.
Cherie Bowker, chair of Lethbridge College’s School of Spatial Design Technologies, adds, “I’m really delighted for this cooperation with Liquid Avatar Technologies.”
The students will learn how to work, play, learn, game, entertain, and earn in the metaverse
Students will learn how to work, play, learn, game, entertain, and earn in the metaverse in the virtual areas collectively known as Lethbridge College Island on Aftermath Islands. In addition to the virtual land, up to 100,000 in-game currency credits are being made accessible to the college. According to the institution, those credits may be used to develop, acquire, and trade assets such as extra property, objects, landscape things, and even avatars.
CTED students will get hands-on opportunity to develop Lethbridge College Island by collaborating with industry leaders and instructors who will coach them along the process.
