I think this is a good assessment of the potential for virtual reality (VR) in education. "VR does have many specialized applications in industry, such as large-scale flight simulators, remote medical surgery, and astronaut training. However, for business-related training of the average employee, it fails to add any real benefits over interactive 3D on a PC, phone, or tablet." The author notes that lower-quality VR may produce nausea, and that because it is totally immersive, VR has limited application in combination with other activities. Image: Digital Leaders.
