What is Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality, or VR, is a technology that allows users to experience a simulated environment. This environment can be either imaginary or replicated from the real world. VR immerses users within an experience instead of presenting them using a screen. The users are able to interact with the assets in the 3D environments. The computer becomes a gatekeeper to this artificial world by simulating as many senses as possible, including vision, hearing, touch, and even smell.

Benefits of VR Development

Little/no risk

In virtual reality, there is usually no real danger to the learners even though the simulated environment is treacherous. This allows the learners to focus on gaining competency without the fear of endangering either themselves or their team mates.
VR can create incredibly realistic scenarios that would be difficult or impossible to recreate in the real world. This makes VR an ideal tool for training and education. For example, learners can be transported back in time to learn about a culture and even experience what life is like in that period.
VR development is often more cost-effective than traditional methods of training or simulation. This is due to the fact that VR can be delivered remotely, eliminating many of the associated costs. In addition, learners can access the content anywhere at their convenience.
Because of the immersive and experiential nature of VR, it helps to engage students and keep them interested in the material. VR can also increase engagement in the learning process where it allows students to interact with the material in a way that is not possible with traditional methods of training or simulation.

Uses of VR

Education & Training

VR can be used in several ways to improve education learning and training procedures whereby educators can also use VR to create immersive learning experiences. History lessons can be more engaging when students are able to visit ancient civilizations, and science classes can be more stimulating when students are able to experiment with chemicals virtually. A physics student might be able to better understand the principles of motion by interacting with the virtual objects. Another common application is training simulations where trainee pilot can use VR to experience how to fly a plane without ever leaving the ground.

Boost Student Engagement

The Virtual Classroom allows educator to develop innovative teaching methods and leverage the power of virtual reality to make learning more exciting and interactive. Imagine students learning how lava flows out of the mouth of a volcano (crater) or even experiencing an earthquake. Such learning scenarios are not possible in real-life, but are achievable in an immersive environment.

Virtual reality technology can help students learn the theory in a more engaging and innovative way, as opposed to the traditional way of reading and learning the theory off the textbook. Virtual reality setup allows students to simply learn things by interacting with the artefacts.

High Tech Training

Description automatically generated with medium confidenceVR technology is commonly used in an industry that works with dangerous machinery. VR can help someone learn how to operate a machine in a safe environment without having to worry about making mistakes that could lead to injuries.

Many industrial plants are using VR for safety training. All workers in a plant can be given basic safety instructions in a virtual environment that is realistic and informative. VR can help people learn about things that are challenging or risky to show them in real life. It is an excellent training tool for many areas such as the military, medical profession and science.

Distance Learning

VR can also be utilized in online education, specifically for distance learning. Online students can now attend classes and lectures in a virtual classroom, without having to leave their homes. VR provides an immersive environment that allows students to feel as if they are sitting in the same room together with the lecturer and their classmates. This technology has the potential to revolutionize online education by making it more engaging and interactive. VR in distance learning eliminates the barrier of location and physical presence and removes the time barrier as students are able to re-watch the recorded lesson anytime convenient to their schedule.
