Topic: The role of virtual reality in modern day teaching: an illustrative example
Abstract: Virtual Reality (VR) plays an important role in enhancing the teaching and learning experience of the students. This research project aims to examine the impact of integrating VR into the teaching and learning of built environment discipline. By exploring the transformative potential of VR, this study attempts to address the questions: (1) What are the students’ perception of the use of VR on learning engagement? (2) Can the knowledge of students about retail space be enhanced through VR? This project employs quantitative data analysis. The students are invited to complete the questionnaire surveys after viewing the VR. The expected outcomes include an understanding of the benefits and challenges of integrating VR into education.
