As stated in the overview, VR and AR will likely to gain dramatic popularity and revenue growth after 2018. I find this statement very true. I think that as education moving towards internet, it will acquire more and more technologies to provide same learning experience as in a traditional classroom setting. To achieve this, VR or AR will play a key role. Although the technologies may not seem popular right now, it is a real promise to the education industry to build a virtual school on internet.
I do agree with cquarrie that the technologies need to be defined properly in order to provide critical assistance in distance education. Without proper planning of VR, the technology can be somewhat useless as other classmates perviously argued in the VR forum. However, I see VR as a way to change where the class takes place rather than changing how people get educated. We need time in order to figure out how to efficiently and appropriately use the technologies, but it won’t change the fact that this technology may be the solution to move whole school online.
