VR is a transformative medium by essence.

As research already shows, VR has the potential to profoundly impact Education in the next upcoming years

Featured Case Studies

Here are some examples of how Universities have been using Wonda VR to include immersive learning into their curriculum.

Management Training / North Carolina State University

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.

Job Training / New York University

Every year, students from NYU Silver School of Social Work complete an internship in an organization located in and around the Lower East Side.

Through this experience, NYU Silver School of Social Work’s graduate students embark into a narrated virtual field trip within the very neighborhood where they will be working.

As they virtually cross a main thoroughfare, board a city bus, pass a public park or wait at a traffic light, they have the opportunity to proactively engage social work concepts

By prompting students to observe each location in 360° and trigger information hotspots, the students are provided with a new tool to think about the implications of the specific multi-layered and historical environment on their social work.

Language Learning / Harvard University

In today’s digital, globalizing economy, transcultural competences and language proficiency is a must. But it is a hard skill to gain unless you have the ability to travel to other countries for long periods of times and practice the language in its original environment.

At Harvard, French Language 101 students now have the ability to experience Parisian life through the eyes of 4 locals in short, intensive first-person experiences.

Made accessible directly from within the classroom in Boston, this interactive VR experience allows them to interact with the different characters in complete cultural immersion and gain more confidence in day-to-day exchanges in a foreign language.

Admissions & On-Boarding / Michigan State University

For many students and their families who can’t afford the cost of travel to multiple universities, VR tours help them experience the university before they make a decision.

Michigan State University created a guided tour so prospective students can virtually travel to each main location at their own pace and learn about the unique services the university provides and what to expect in terms of campus culture.

Project-Based Learning for students

fadeIn
VR has amazing potential to immerse students in stories about art, history and culture. It will certainly impact the way we work and socialize in the years to come.

By allowing students to create their own VR Experience as part of project-based learning, the learning outcomes for students are skyrocketing while preparing them for their future workplace environment and foster their creative thinking skills.

At NYU Gallatin School of Personalized Studies for instance, students were invited to produce their own VR experience for their research project on the indigenous history of New York City.

During a semester, students documented their research and designed a VR experience on their own using Wonda VR.
