  author={Brendan Joseph Concannon and Shaniff Esmail and Mary Roduta Roberts},
  journal={Frontiers in Education},
Background: This review focused on how immersive head-mounted display virtual reality (VR) was used in post-secondary level education and skill training, with the aim to better understand its state of the art as found from the literature. While numerous studies describe the use of immersive VR within a specific educational setting, they are often standalone events not fully detailed regarding their curricular integration. This review aims to analyse these events, with a focus on immersive VR’s…

Immersive Virtual Reality in K-12 and Higher Education: A systematic review of the last decade scientific literature
A variety of studies that provide qualitative and/or quantitative data to investigate the current practices with VR support focusing on students’ outcomes, performance, alongside with the benefits and challenges of this technology concerning the analysis of visual features and design elements with mobile and desktop computing devices in different learning subjects are presented.
Virtual Reality Stereoscopic 180-Degree Video-Based Immersive Environments
The conceptual framework and Revinax® 180-degree stereoscopic video-based approach in addressing the academic achievement gap through conventional surgical students and nurses shadowing are described and how immersive VR environments may best address leveraging the learner's capability of increasing their skill acquisition, learning, and knowledge retention in a more efficient time-period are described.
See it, hear it, feel it: embodying a patient experience through immersive virtual reality

Teaching and Learning Processes in Immersive VR – Comparing Expectations of Preservice Teachers and Teacher Educators
The usage of VR in higher education is not uncommon anymore. However, concepts are mainly still focusing on technical rather than pedagogical aspects of VR in the classroom. The exploration of the
Exploring structural relations among computer self-efficacy, perceived immersion, and intention to use virtual reality training systems
The use of virtual reality (VR) training systems for education has grown in popularity in recent years. Scholars have reported that self-efficacy and interactivity are important predictors of
The impact of computer-mediated immediate feedback on developing oral presentation skills: An exploratory study in virtual reality
For educators seeking viable alternatives to face-to-face presentation practice and feedback, the finding that immediate computer-mediated feedback is potentially effective in aiding presentation performance is crucial for two reasons.
Virtual reality technologies in the educational process: Prospects and dangers

What is the Current State of Extended Reality Use in Otolaryngology Training? A Scoping Review.
Current educational applications of XR in OHNS are limited to VR, do not fully immerse participants and do not assess higher-level learning outcomes, and the educational OHNS community would benefit from a shared definition for VR technology, assessment of skills transfer, and deliberate testing of AR, MR, and procedures beyond temporal bone surgery.


A review of the use of virtual reality head-mounted displays in education and training
The review identified a number of situations where HMDs are useful for skills acquisition and outside of these situations the HMTs had no advantage when compared to less immersive technologies or traditional instruction and in some cases even proved counterproductive because of widespread cybersickness, technological challenges, or because the immersive experience distracted from the learning task.
Learning Science in Immersive Virtual Reality
The goals of the study were (a) to compare the instructional effectiveness of immersive virtual reality (VR) versus a desktop slideshow as media for teaching scientific knowledge, and (b) to examine
Effectiveness of Two Varying Levels of Virtual Reality Simulation
VRS provides another alternative for simulated learning experiences; best practice approaches for its use still need to be explored.
