Students’ presentation competence increased without a difference between VR and face-to-face.

Proud to be co-authors on an article published in one of the leading journals “Computers & Education”.

Together with an excellent team, we researched the impact of giving feedback in VR compared to face-2-face feedback.

The research shows that presentation competence increased without a difference between face-2-face feedback and VR. Also the feedback in VR was perceived as detailed.

The VR environment let the students experience a classroom setting where they had to present. During their presentation all kind of measurements where being conducted. Measurements on voice, posture etc. These measurements provided the input for giving the feedback in graphs and explanation.

Meanwhile we face teacher shortages in the Netherlands. Using effective learning technologies, can teacher shortage be reduced?
