An Application of Virtual Reality in Education: Can this Technology Enhance the Quality of Students’ Learning Experience?
Virtual reality (VR) technology is making its mark across market sectors (e.g., gaming, healthcare, tourism). This paper examines the use of VR in education, specifically in business classes, to better understand how this technology can help students improve their communication skills associated in delivering effective presentations and participating in public speaking events. The VR application allowed students to assess their presentation skills, to then practice in upgrading their skills, and gain more confidence in delivering effective presentations. Overall, this research demonstrates that the adoption of VR can be extremely beneficial to business educators in helping students enhance their presentation skills.
