8. A professor has developed a piece of software that allows him to transform into a virtual anime schoolgirl to attract more students to his online classes. Jiang Fei, a digital art professor at Shanghai Universities Fine Arts College, says that since COVID-19 led to the adoption of digital classrooms, online exams, and virtual flag-raising ceremonies by many Chinese schools, it has been challenging to keep students motivated in their studies and up-to-date on their assigned coursework. Fei developed his own custom software that utilizes a binocular camera to track human bones and overlay them with 3D digital models in real-time. After isolating himself in his home this past January due to the outbreak, he began using the custom software to spice up his live streams and recorded lessons. While Fei is capable of switching between multiple characters such as monsters, robots, and Iron Man, his students have become fond of an anime schoolgirl model, which has since become his go-to avatar. Since implementing the technology into his lessons, Fei has reported an overall increase in student engagement as well as noticeable improvements to retention. – VRSCOUT
