Using virtual and augmented reality to improve learning: a FLANZ online Conversation

FLANZ proudly presents the first of its FLANZ Conversations for 2018, a joint event with EdTechNZ. Using virtual and augmented reality to improve learning. 08 March, 1:00 pm.

As virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) technologies become cheaper and more readily available, particularly through smartphone apps, mainstream practical application becomes more achievable. Both technologies lend themselves readily to learning, with the cost and timeframe to delivery fast approaching that of traditional elearning. In this webinar we’ll look at how VR and AR can deliver on learning needs, the future potential of both technologies as they become cheaper and more available, and some current examples of both in action.
