Why Virtual Reality Immersive Learning?
Immersive technologies are the future. By 2022 the XR market is expected to grow
8 times of what it is today. XR technologies will merge the physical with the virtual
world and will provide us with dynamic experiences as if we are actually on-a-specific-place or situation.
XR is an umbrella term for all immersive technologies such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) plus those that are still to be materialized. All new technologies either blend virtual and “real” worlds or create a fully three-dimensional, six degrees of freedom (6DoF) immersive experience.
In augmented reality, virtual information and objects are overlaid on the real world. This experience enhances the real world with digital details such as images, text, and animation. You can access the experience through AR glasses or via screens, tablets, and smartphones. This means users are not isolated from the real world and can still interact and see their surroundings.
