The Communication University of China launches virtual version on Baidu’s metaverse

One of China’s major universities has taken its business to the metaverse, making it the countries first academic institution to jump on the fast-rising trend.

The Communication University of China has tapped on Baidu’s XiRang platform to replicate its physical campus on the metaverse. Interestingly, the institution already hosted its anniversary celebration and awards ceremony on the digital campus on December 26. The event was co-hosted by both physical and virtual persons.

As for the virtual campus, metaverse visitors can explore a digital version of the university by using a VR headset, mobile device, or PC.

As reported by BTC PEERS, Chinese tech giant Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) officially began testing its metaverse app called XiRang in December. The app was later opened to all users on December 27 and used to host the company’s annual flagship developers’ conference, Baidu Create.

XiRang, literally defined as the “land of hope,” is a non-blockchain metaverse platform developed by Baidu.

Probably fueled by the global pandemic, the popularity of virtual universities has been on the rise. Last month, Meta Platforms (formerly Facebook (NASDAQ:FB)) partnered with VR headset producer VictoryXR in an initiative to launch 10 metaverse university campuses across the US by 2022. Similarly, in November Stanford University opened its first VR classroom to facilitate remote learning and interaction.
