Ways VR is different…
- VR is immersive
- VR is intuitive
Immersive means that VR feels like a physical space where you are present.
- Experiences in VR are something you do rather than something you watch.
- Experiences in VR make use of spatial memory to make them memorable.
Intuitive means that the user can interact in simple ways with the virtual space. If the space is well designed, there is a very short learning curve.
- Virtual reality is hands-on. High end VR systems give you hands in the virtual world, hands you can use to do things.
Affordable, Immersive, Intuitive. Easy to use for teachers and students.
