Getting good grades, a component of student performance, is a critical measure of student success for higher education institutions. Virtual reality (VR) applications in higher education are one way some schools are looking to improve student performance. Education administrators and decision-makers want students to retain what they have learned, enabling students to earn good grades. To do that, higher education institutions need to keep pace with advancements in education technology.
Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality applications in higher education could help to transform academics, providing richer, technology-driven learning and teaching experiences. Such applications stand to significantly benefit from the higher speeds, greater bandwidth and lower latency 5G can provide.
