EdTech: Teaching and learning with virtual reality

Average rating is 3.7 out of 5    
Module description.

Immersive technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR) make a distinctive contribution to learning and to individual learners that cannot be replicated by any other media currently available to educators. What makes it special for educational content creators is its ability to fully immerse the user in the created world, engaging the senses and producing the feeling of being there in the moment.
