The Moderating Effect of Debriefing on Learning Outcomes of IVR-Based Instruction: An Experimental Research
With its ability to afford immersive and interactive learning experiences, virtual reality has been widely used to support experiential learning, of which the learning effectiveness is promoted by
From Digital Media to Empathic Reality: A Systematic Review of Empathy Research in Extended Reality Environments
Recent advances in extended reality (XR) technologies have enabled new and increasingly realistic empathy tools and experiences. In XR, all interactions take place in different spatial contexts, all
A scoping review of the educational uses of 6DoF HMDs
A scoping review of head-mounted displays offering six degrees of freedom demonstrated that these devices outperform other tools, and appear to have a positive effect on users' engagement, motivation to learn, immersion, and enjoyment.
The analysis of foreign countries experience in information technologies application in higher education
This paper analyses the use and effectiveness of modern information technologies application in higher education in different countries. This form of learning needs to provide the level of knowledge
Inspection of histological 3D reconstructions in virtual reality
This paper presents an immersive visualisation solution to quality control (QC) that is streamlined by subtle implementation details and general immersion in VR, and advances the microanatomical research of human bone marrow and spleen.


Salient features of an effective immersive non-collaborative virtual reality learning environment
This paper identifies salient features of a fully immersive and non-collaborative VRLEs that uses HMD and reveals the existing research gaps among VRLE studies.
Learning in virtual reality: Effects on performance, emotion and engagement
Recent advances in virtual reality (VR) technology allow for potential learning and education applications. For this study, 99 participants were assigned to one of three learning conditions:
Investigating the Impact of Interactive Immersive Virtual Reality Environments in Enhancing Task Performance in Online Engineering Design Activities
The objective of this paper is to test the hypothesis that immersive virtual reality environments such as those achievable through the head-mounted displays, enhance task performance in online engineering design activities, and to explore whether statistically significant differences in performance exist between these groups.
Exploring immersive experience in journalism
This study proposes a VR experience model in the IJ context that integrates cognitive, affective, and behavioral factors as the primary influencing determinants and demonstrates the users’ cognitive processes of experiencing quality, value, and satisfaction, which determine how people empathize with and embody VR stories.
