The QUTVR project addresses the growing need across QUT for a web-based portal for delivering a range of 360° imagery, videos, and other VR university-related content to a range of audiences, including staff, current and future students and the general public.

Chiefly driven by Science and Engineering Faculty (SEF) Engagements & Partnerships, and International Development teams, the long-term aim is for this portal to also welcome students and visitors and generally promote a range of exciting immersive content, covering all areas within the university.

The primary goal was to create an intuitive and easy-to-use system for navigating and displaying assorted VR content for QUT events, marketing and information dissemination purposes. The web portal targets mobile devices first and foremost through a progressive web app, supporting the latest iOS and Android phones, and is compatible for use with QUT-branded Google Cardboard VR headsets.
