Eleven high-resolution, panoramic four-dimensional (4D) virtual farms from across Australasia have been developed. These 4D farms and associated learning resources support student learning before, during and after student visits to properties. This presentation will provide an overview of the material, its current and potential use within veterinary and agricultural curricula and student assessment.
This session will cover the background and goals of the project, and include demonstration of the website and associated learning modules.
