Virtual Reality Collaboration Study
A learning community (LC) is a group of people who share common academic goals and attitudes, who meet semi-regularly to collaborate on classwork. These groups are documented to provide significant positive impact on the participating students’ academic performance. Virtualizing LCs has the potential to expand and supplement existing learning structures, and create new ones where they were not previously available. Our project will evaluate the impact that virtualization has on LCs. This research will lead to a better understanding of the strengths and limitation of introducing VR technologies in higher education. Presenting institutions with data about virtualization technologies that have their impact and benefits well-researched will ease the reservations that administrators and other stakeholders might have.
