Virtual data and augmented reality
Although envisioned primarily for advanced-level video games and simulations, virtual and augmented reality can simulate highly ‘immersive learning’ experiences. In campus, with the help of augmented reality, students can gain a better understanding of concepts that they are studying. For example, in engineering, a lecturer can integrate augmented reality into her lessons to explain complex designs and prototypes of models using 3D technology to the students.
Key benefit Augmented lessons and apps encourage greater participation as they are more fun and engaging for students.
