The opening of its campus in the metaverse was recently announced by the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF). Students and professionals in the financial and business sectors can benefit from an extensive and immersive learning experience provided by this digital platform.
It will also act as a “holistic platform” for collaboration, idea generation, and innovation between students, professors, and alumni. The BIBF is the first educational institution in Bahrain to open its campus on the metaverse, entirely created and built by Bahraini experts.
The BIBF Metaverse will be launched in two stages, the first of which is already in place and focuses on setting up the BIBF infrastructure and some facilities, and the second of which launches the auditorium and classrooms where live sessions will be held.
The BIBF Metaverse is an online simulation of the BIBF building that enables users to communicate with one another in a virtual setting. Users can participate in interactive learning activities, including videos and tutorials, attend events, work together on projects, and attend events.
For students pursuing various degrees and certificates, the metaverse provides immersive learning environments, augmented reality capabilities, and digital media laboratories. Users can connect with colleagues and experts in the field, attend virtual conferences and events, and develop the skills necessary for success in the banking and finance sector with this networking and professional development platform.
