DEVELOPMENT
The Baylor VR Club development team is a team focussed on creating high quality virtual reality experiences. The team is currently working directly with the Baylor Library System as well as Oculus (through the Oculus Start program) to create a VR museum exhibit showcasing the library’s collection of Black Gospel music. We plan to move on to creating a game after our current project’s completion. The development team is open to all who are interested. We are all learning together and are happy to help any aspiring VR developers.
Projects
Black Music Gospel Project

Alongside Baylor's Black Gospel Music Restoration Project, the development team is working to create a VR experience so that users can appreciate the expansive archive of the most at-risk pieces and ephemera from the Black Gospel Music tradition in the United States between the 1940's through the 1980's.
