Welcome to this Week 9 – Opportunity Forecast-
We are happy to welcome you in the world of Immersive Experience (XR), we hope that with our OER you are able to understand, learn, and reflect on the topic of Immersive Experience. In other words in AR and VR (XR) experiences…
Concrete examples or experiences with VR/AR in your daily lives might be lacking. However, the development of Virtual/Augmented Reality software is booming and the use of it seems endless. With its origin from the game industry, VR/AR is emerging as a learning technology in many other industries. Maybe not too long from now you will be able to delve into the opportunities that XR has to offer in your own work or private life.
We admit we struggled to find very helpful and concrete evidence for VR in education, and we see an opportunity to use this OER to combine and extend our shared knowledge around this topic. The scope of our week is limited so as to not overwhelm you with everything out there on this complex but booming topic. We have chosen to narrow down our information in relation to market trends, education and its pitfalls, and provide you with use cases from industry and healthcare to consider their crossover potential for XR in education. Here’s what you can expect from this week:
- An introduction into Immersive Experience
- Market Analyses
- Immersive Experience & Education (an ambiguous field)
- An exploration of use cases in Healthcare (proven success)
- Assignments & References
Thank you for your active participation & enjoy!
