VR provides a safe and engaging environment for students to build management skills such as conflict resolution skills.
In "First Impressions" a VR experience created at NC State University
, students enrolled in the Management Course learn to respond appropriately and effectively to a cross-cultural incident in a business situation.
“The use of VR and specifically 360° video - aka ‘cinematic VR’ allows students to observe a given situation, then step into the role of one of the individuals involved. The resulting experience gives students a sense of presence and being (visually and audibly) that differs from traditional media forms." Mike Cuales, NC State
The project won the bronze prize 2018 International Serious Play Awards.
