Vir2TEX Project Interim Meeting

The interim meeting of the Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnership project titled “Digital Learning Materials for Sustainable Textile Education (Vir2TEX)” was held between July 5th and 7th, 2022 in Warsaw, Poland. The project is coordinated by Ege University, and the consortium includes 5 organizations from Turkey, Poland, Italy, and Romania.

During the meeting partners discussed the progress of the project and reviewed the upcoming tasks and activities. At the meeting Yaşar University was represented by Assoc.Prof.(PhD) Yasin Özarslan, Director of the Yaşar University Open and Distance Learning Center and by Assoc.Prof. (PhD) Özlem Ozan Özarslan.

The project aims to integrate technology into textile training courses to engage students in immersive learning experiences. This project explores the potential of virtual reality (VR) for deepening understanding and enhancing learner engagement by eliminating the screen and placing learners in the middle of real situations through utilizing VR 360 videos. New learning materials enhanced for distance education about textile production will be developed.
