This paper discusses the development and execution of lecture and laboratory educational content regarding reality capture technology and workflows. These educational modules were created to cover different use cases for reality capture technology that are currently being used in the construction industry. They also show how reality capture plays a role in the larger virtual design in construction (BIM) process. Importantly, these labs were designed to be completed with the LiDAR scanner on a typical iPhone, which has lowered the barrier to entry for reality capture education and use in industry. While the initial teaching of these courses was done in a synchronous in person format, content was also created to allow for these lessons to be completed asynchronously and remote, to provide students and faculty flexibility. This adds to the knowledge base of students in higher education by teaching elements of the BIM process not typically covered in a standard curriculum. The goal of this project was to provide a hands-on project for students, and faculty to understand how BIM can be used, and is currently being used on construction jobsites.
