This course from blockchain experts Blocknorth, who are also closely allied with key augmented reality partners, will give you a clear understanding of the Metaverse, it’s development and its current and future potential. The course covers the building blocks of the Metaverse; business and the Metaverse; the wide uses of the technology; and a look at the possibilities for the future. It then considers the legal issues underlying the development and the future of the Metaverse.

This course builds a legal issues section on top of our original ‘Introduction to the Metaverse’ course so it does not need the original course to be completed first.
