Virtual Education at HKU Campusland
The HKU CampusLand is located within a larger project called the Marvion Central Park environment. This environment contains virtual buildings, such as a virtual art and collectibles gallery, virtual stores, and recreational facilities and facilities.
“As to why we developed our metaverse on Roblox and not from scratch, the answer is simple. When thinking about Web 3.0, the key is to have something that can interact across different platforms. Thus, our goal is to develop AI applications that can work in any given environment and not a single metaverse. Therefore, as we continue to grow, Marvion Central Park will also be available on different platforms and will provide a more diverse virtual learning experience – which we collectively refer to as Marvion’s Edu-verse. As we start this project with HKU, we hope to expand it to other regions, including Singapore, Europe, and even the United States,” said Raymond Chua, CEO of Marvel.
