Extended reality-based technology provides students and teachers with a more interactive, advanced and fun learning environment

With the rapid changes of the digital age, educational institutions are under tremendous pressure in the race to deliver excellent technology-enabled education and provide the best student experiences.

Advances in online learning over the past two years have helped students become active seekers of learning. They are no longer confined to a classroom to learn. In such a situation, extended reality-based learning not only improves the process but also provides deep understanding of the topics.

Flexibility

Extended Reality or XR encompasses Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR). According to a survey conducted by Statista, 80% of people using VR/AR devices felt better learning motivation and 93% mentioned that it improved their spatial understanding of the subject.

XR-based technology provides students and teachers with a more interactive, advanced, and fun learning environment. In addition to flexible study schedules and teaching modes, XR technologies will not only allow institutions to better understand learner profiles through advanced data analytics, but also provide ways to use the information to personalize and improve educational pedagogy. XR allows students to experience new and futuristic ways of learning. For example, experiments can be performed more safely and less expensively. In subjects such as chemistry, there will be no need to fear explosions or injuries.

Better understanding

XR-based education helps students improve and expand their imaginations and leads to better understanding. For teachers, it provides visualization aids that help them teach practically rather than just conceptually. Statista’s survey showed that students preferred VR lessons because they felt they were being followed in context, which helped them retain information. With technology advancing every day, the XR market will continue to grow and become a revolutionary development in the education industry.
