Virtual Reality in the Education

As technology advances, new technologies emerge and a new ways of learning are being introduced to us. Studies demonstrated that multimedia can provide a very effective teaching and learning environment in such a way that the learning style preferences (visual, aural, text and kinaesthetic) of the learners are taken into consideration.

These studies indicate that the visual features play a very important role in understanding the concepts. As this necessitates creating new richer visual learning environments, we have to migrate into Virtual Reality (VR) educational multimedia system.

The goal of VR is to enhance, motivate and stimulate students of certain events and at the same time it also allows for students to experience hands on learning. But what is more appealing in regards to VR in education is the fact that it can be used to simulate and allow learners to practice procedures without the risk involved.

This can be applied in experiments that have proven to be difficult to carried out in traditional instructional environments, where teaching students regarding safety procedures; and in medical education without involving the safety of a real patient.

Based on the comments and feedback received from various students, it was concluded that virtual reality multimedia could enhance learning by providing much more realistic images and visual features. In addition, students found that the virtual reality multimedia teaching is very effective in terms of ease of learning and it’s very close relationship with the real world.
