In the recent era of technology, Virtual Reality has emerged as one of the most promising technologies holding enormous potential in almost every walk of life.
With the help of software and scientific props which heighten our primary senses, Virtual Reality creates a pseudo world allowing us to interact with virtual objects and perform actions as well. Ranging from the fields of Engineering and Medicine to Architecture and Manufacturing, scholars and professionals have been employing VR to better design and visualize solutions to demanding and challenging tasks in their respective fields.
Aspirants are encouraged to explore the Virtual Reality laboratory that has been established in the campus premises to ensure that they embrace the opportunities created by this technology and further exploit them for research studies. Enlightening seminars and workshops organized in collaboration with premier universities and industries focus on the future prospects of VR technology and how they are presently impacting the society at large.
The use of best of technology in AR/VR/MR to solve problems and fill the gaps in daily enterprise processes. We believe that immersive visual technology is the key to changing the way one learns, works, grows and experiences within our environment.
Facilities through the labs are:
- Virtual field trips
Virtual field trips have become one of the most popular applications of VR technology for learning.
- Language immersion
One of the best ways to learn a new language is through full immersion, as this requires students to listen to and speak the language they’re learning all day, every day.
- Skills training
Virtual reality simulations can also help students learn practical skills, and one of the biggest benefits to training people in this way is that students can learn from realistic scenarios without the risk of practicing an unfamiliar skill in an uncontrolled real-life situation.
- Philosophical theories
Even philosophical theories can be brought to life with virtual reality. Thanks to the VR headsets, students are able to see just how immersive a simulation can feel and experience firsthand the possibility that life is nothing more than a simulation.
- Architecture and design
Schools are also finding that virtual reality technology is a great way to spark students’ creativity and keep them engaged, especially when it comes to architecture and design.
- Special education
Technology and special education explains that the Oculus Rift has helped spark his students’ imagination and gives them a visual insight they wouldn’t otherwise have. For instance, students can take a peek inside an Egyptian temple or view a jet engine to gain an understanding of how it all fits together, which makes lessons a lot more hands on.
- Distance learning
Virtual reality technology also has huge potential in the distance learning industry. The application provides virtual online chat spaces where students with a VR headset can project themselves and interact with lecturers and other students.
- Improved collaboration
Virtual reality technology has the potential to greatly enhance collaboration between teachers and students, both in distance learning and classroom-based teaching. Research shows that virtual and augmented reality simulations increase student motivation and improve collaboration and knowledge construction.
- Game-based learning
Virtual reality will likely completely change the way games can be used for learning. Game-based learning works because in increases engagement and motivation, and virtual reality can take this to the next level.
- Virtual campus visits
Technology is changing the way students select universities and many schools have now started virtual reality campus tours as a way to connect with applicants on a wider scale. These campus ‘visits’ allow students to see what it would be like to attend universities in other cities and countries even if they can’t visit in person.
