Welcome to the New Age of Learning

The Housekeeping Virtual Reality course started with the February 2019 intake. We have created a serious game where a team of 5 student’s work together. Only one student wears the Oculus glasses, the others see what he/she is seeing on a screen. We have received excellent feedback from the students who appreciate the use of technology in the class. The whole student team is involved from the start of the experience and they can quickly see the benefits of working as a team to succeed in the game.

For the future we need to introduce more gamification and experience-based learning into our curriculum. We are currently looking at augmented (AR) and mixed reality (MR) technology, as well as more VR possibilities. The next serious game will allow each student to participate “inside the game” either sharing the VR experience by all being in the same virtual environment or by using AR or MR so that all players can see the same objects.

Holographic images may also play a part in our future education, bringing celebrities to life who can share their knowledge without physically being on site.
