One initiative involves 10 U.S. universities and colleges working with Meta,
the parent company of Facebook, and virtual reality company VictoryXR to
create 3D online replicas, sometimes called "digital twins," of their
campuses that are updated live as people and objects move through the
real-world spaces. More and more colleges are becoming "metaversities,"
taking their physical campuses into a virtual online world, commonly called the "metaverse."
In the metaverse, some classes are already in session. VictoryXR also claims
that by 2023, it intends to construct and run 100 digital twin campuses,
