In Dr. Bruckman's course, Data Visualization and Analytics, students learn about the various ways to visually represent data effectively. Students are typically presented with a dataset and are taught to code it into a visual format, making choices along the way as to how that data should be shown to best suit an argument. But up until this point, she was limited to 2-D options representations. 

In the app developed by Dr. Bruckman during her fellowship (3-D DataViz), students have the ability to present data holographically in 3-D from their familiar coding platform, which can be edited live and immediately pushed to all connected lenses. Dr Bruckman hopes that this additional dimension of representation can improve their ability to analyze and communicate through data.


The IC Fellows Cohort is Provost-sponsored initiative since 2022 to expand CWRU's homegrown mixed reality (MR) educational programming throughout the university in ways that benefit learners. This one-year fellowship is free and open to all CWRU faculty and staff. Once selected, Fellows meet weekly at the IC to become fluent in the application and best practices of MR as a teaching tool and receive support in the design, build, and execution of customized MR applications.
