VR is already making a big impact on the world of education, resulting in a transformation of resources for teaching and learning by allowing students to explore and travel without leaving the classroom.

In this class, our speaker will share information about recent developments in VR, as well as practical exercises. Attendees will develop their knowledge of using VR in education and will be able to plan the implementation of VR in their teaching and learning.
