  journal={World Journal on Educational Technology: Current Issues},
In this study, a virtual reality (VR) fire drill application was developed with head-mounted display VR technology for university students. The aim of the study is to evaluate the integration process of this VR application into authentic learning environments in terms of student opinions. Case study methodology was used in the study. The results show that this technology provides useful and permanent learning, practice opportunity to students, and this technology increases the motivation and… Expand
