Virtual Reality In Higher Education: What’s the Status?

Marketing and virtual tours

Some universities are even using VR as a marketing tool. The University of Technology Sydney, for example, uses a VR app to show prospective students that the campus is safe and accessible. It can also provide a virtual tour of the campus for international students or those who can’t manage to visit before applying. Monash University encourages interested students to visit its website in order to access a virtual tour[5] either using a head set or as a desktop experience in Safari. From the comfort of your home, you can explore its Green Chemical Futures building, Medicine and Medicine Education divisions, Science precinct, New Horizons building, Science Technology Research Innovation Precinct, Journalism department, and various campuses.

Virtual reality is offering some promising benefits to higher education[6]. The trend won’t be slowing down any time soon, so educators and students should expect to see more virtual reality technology enter Australian markets and classrooms in the very near future. It couldn’t be a better time, as creative education solutions are becoming more important than ever.
