How you can use the Wacom Cintiq 22HD Creative Pen Display in your teaching

  • Use the Cintiq in place of the old transparency machines. You could do short lectures when you need to diagram and provide access later.
  • Mold, shape, sculpt, and animate your character mesh in 3D sculpting.
  • Create concept art, character development, story boarding, and matte painting, in the 2D world.

If you’re interested in trying out the Wacom Cintiq 22HD Creative Pen Display, drop by the Faculty Innovation Center or talk to your Instructional Technologist.

New in the FIC: Oculus DK2

The Oculus DK2 is a development kit that allows users to create virtual reality games, experiments, and environments. It features many of the key technical breakthroughs and core elements of the consumer Rift including a low-persistence, high-definition display and precise, low-latency positional head tracking. This makes the Oculus DK2 a great tool for use in the School of Film and Television and the College of Communication and Fine Arts, allowing faculty and students to create new VR worlds in which to tell stories and create breathtaking new worlds.

How you can use the Oculus DK2 and Virtual Reality in the classroom

  • The Mission is a virtual reality short film that drops the audience into the middle of the Eastern Front. Imagine being able to take your history class directly to the front lines! For any history class studying World War II, this would be an amazing experience for students. It could also be a useful tool for creating narrative in a literature course or examining causes and effects of wars in Political Science.
  • Roman Pantheon is a recreation of what the Pantheon would have looked like. This could be useful in any class studying the period, classic literature from the period, or ancient languages.
  • Guided Meditation is a VR meditation program with four settings. Could be used in Yoga Studies.
  • More generally, there are several games, where looking at how women are portrayed in these virtual worlds could be an interesting topic of discussion in Women’s Studies or looking at how people of color are portrayed in African American Studies or Chicano/a Studies.
