    Thanks for the session! Here we can find two excellent teaching experiences, one delivered through YouTube and one from a more traditional venue. I wonder if we could chat about the advantages and disadvantages that they see in each one of these learning venues, in particular to gain an in-depth understanding of the media possibilities and the current technologies.

    Hey pfiguero! This is Andrew. That's a good question. The main advantage for me is making the content relevant. Since XR is an everchanging space, it takes a lot of extra work to stay up-to-date. Through my personal, and professional work I get the opportunity to explore the technology and then share that knowledge with others. A downside of this may be the lack of a linear learning path. It's project-based or SDK based and assumes the learner has some understanding of the tools and the VR experience. So, it can be a bit overwhelming for the entry-level learner.
