Introducing a whole new concept of Virtual Reality in education and technology – a unique, student-friendly VR-class is a groundbreaking new technology designed to increase engagement and knowledge retention for students.
Virtual reality has the potential to revolutionise training and education, but it is yet to be accepted and leveraged within the conventional classrooms. With education shifting to the online settings, VR could be a groundbreaking addition to any subject or field. Learning through virtual reality makes training and education so much more engaging and fun.
In a recent survey on what progress/ advancement would people like to see in the education sector by 2030, Virtual reality was the top choice of people from all countries.
In this digital age, distance learning has become extremely popular, and people are acknowledging the benefits of online classrooms. With such dramatic changes, utilising the benefits of virtual reality in education will only enhance learning and the environment.
The University of Warwick conducted a study that showed that the students who were learning through VR, remembered the subject materials better than the ones that studied in the regular fashion. The students who were a part of this study also claimed that they were less nervous, more confident, positive and had stronger emotions after using the VR technology in education, as opposed to textbooks and videos.
The only source of knowledge is experience
~ Albert Einstein
Experience is by far the best way to learn and retain information, and learning through VR allows you to do exactly that. Would you rather engage in storytelling via VR about ancient Egypt, or walk amongst the pyramids?
Leveraging the benefits of VR in education provides the students with first hand experience in complex environments that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to, and this can be applicable/ beneficial to a wide range of subjects.
Imagine explaining the concept of human rights to Adolf Hitler. Next thing you find yourself being transported to Auschwitz.
This isn’t all, the possibilities and the benefits of virtual reality in education are endless! There are so many different tools that can be incorporated for studies and education.

Learning through virtual reality provides the students with an opportunity to experience technology, in contrast to the traditional methods of reading and writing.
The fact that VR technology enables students to visit and experience extraordinary locations within the four walls of the classroom, is completely unique and thrilling and hence, is inspirational to students.
The immersive learning through VR is unparalleled in training and education. Students are teleported to exotic locations, back in time, to experiment with hazardous chemicals, and be able topet dangerous animals. Students are provided with the opportunity to and their imagination is allowed to flourish.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, being stuck indoors all day, the biggest struggles that students faced was the lack of stimulation through interaction with one another. According to a study by the Office for National Statistics, 50% of the students reported being dissatisfied with their social life during the autumn of 2020, and 57% reported their mental health state worsening.
Students are urged to interact with each other throughout the VR experience. After which, they are excited and eager to share their thrilling experiences with each other.
Students are perpetually looking for external stimulation and hence, get bored with the traditional teaching methods. That’s why the modern concept of learning through VR gets the students’ excited and fired up, like nothing else. We find that students thoroughly enjoy the entire experience.
Using virtual reality, schools can provide their students with travel experiences that would otherwise not have been possible or practical. Schools can save funds to provide students with these incredible experiences.
With VR, the sky’s the limit. Biology enthusiasts will be able to go closer to and even touch wild, dangerous animals, observe and explore their anatomy. While the chemistry enthusiasts can freely experiment with toxic, hazardous and even explosive chemicals and devices, safely, which otherwise they would be asked to avoid or just read about.
The traditional style of studying involved rote learning information directly from the textbook. However, learning through virtual reality involves students going through the experience and answering questions in the examinations from a place of experience making their answers highly detailed and wholesome.
The VR content provided to us by XRVio was superb! We were initially apprehensive of introducing this new technology to the students however, now that we have used and experienced it, we observed that the students seem more confident about their subjects and the exam answers are more descriptive than ever.
This technology is a boon, and XRVio is a great provider!

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on young minds. Even when the schools began reopening, the students seemed worried and anxious. However, with the introduction of VR content provided by XRVio, the atmosphere of the class and eventually the school improved overnight. It was initially an element of excitement and thrill among students, however, later, they along with the school authorities began noticing the benefits of VR in education.
