Virtual reality (VR) offers new possibilities for learning, specifically for training individuals to perform physical movements such as physical therapy and exercise. The current article examines two aspects of VR that uniquely contribute to media interactivity: the ability to capture and review physical behavior and the ability to see one's avatar rendered in real time from third person points of view. In two studies, we utilized a state-of-the-art, image-based tele-immersive system, capable… 
Implicit Learning Through Embodiment in Immersive Virtual Reality
Virtual reality (VR) typically results in the illusion of presence. The participant in a VR scenario typically has the illusion of being in the virtual place, and under the right conditions the
Chapter 2 Implicit Learning Through Embodiment in Immersive Virtual Reality
Virtual reality (VR) typically results in the illusion of presence. The participant in a VR scenario typically has the illusion of being in the virtual place, and under the right conditions the
Virtual Reality
TLDR
This article provides a fundamental understanding of the components of virtual reality (VR), a thorough discussion of the role VR has played in social science, and some possibilities for future research for interested social scientists.
Exploring Effects of Interactivity on Learning with Interactive Storytelling in Immersive Virtual Reality
TLDR
Data suggest that interactivity in the VR storytelling experience for immunology learning significantly affects students' engagement in learning, attention, and focus on learning material.
Virtual reality in sports coaching, skill acquisition and application to surfing: A review
TLDR
The paper describes VR, examines the uses of VR in sports, the applicability of methodological approaches used along with findings, limitations and the implications for coaching and athlete practice, and identifies how the technology can apply to surfing skill development.
Immersion of virtual reality for rehabilitation - Review.
TLDR
Performance measures including postural stability, navigation task performance, and joint mobility showed varying relations to immersion and different haptic devices such as gloves and controllers provided both strengths and weakness in areas such movement velocity, movement accuracy, and path efficiency.
Immersive Virtual Reality (IVR) in Higher Education: Development and Implementation
TLDR
The paper reports on the first two undergraduate courses that have adopted both VR and IVR modes for classroom learning: ‘Pharmacology and Therapeutics’ and ‘Understanding Ecotourism’.
The Three Pillars of Virtual Reality? Investigating the Roles of Immersion, Presence, and Interactivity
TLDR
It is found that presence as well as interactivity contribute to immersion and that immersion influences satisfaction with a VR experience, indicating that a flow-based conceptualization of immersion is a suitable predictor in VR contexts.
Learning Movements From a Virtual Instructor: Effects of Spatial Orientation, Immersion, and Expertise
TLDR
It is suggested that, when observing complex, dynamic movement sequences, individuals across experience levels can perform and learn these actions better via a 0° orientation, and that virtual instruction does not require immersion to be effective.
Immersive VR and Education: Embodied Design Principles That Include Gesture and Hand Controls
TLDR
The primary focus of this article is on the embodiment afforded by gesture in 3D for learning, and the new generation of hand controllers induces embodiment and agency via meaningful and congruent movements with the content to be learned.

TLDR
A wireless virtual reality system and a prototype full body Tai Chi training application are presented and it is attempted to show that user interface techniques made possible by such a system can improve training for a full body motor task.
Interpersonal Distance in Immersive Virtual Environments
TLDR
Results indicated that participants maintained greater distance from virtual humans when approaching their fronts compared to their backs, and gave more personal space to virtual agents who engaged them in mutual gaze.

TLDR
The current "state of the art" for virtual reality (VR) applications in the field of motor rehabilitation is reviewed and movements learned by people with disabilities in VR transfer to real world equivalent motor tasks in most cases, and in some cases even generalize to other untrained tasks.
Defining virtual reality: dimensions determining telepresence
TLDR
This paper attempts to cast a new, variable-based definition of virtual reality that can be used to classify virtual reality in relation to other media, based on concepts of "presence" and "telepresence".
Surround-screen projection-based virtual reality: the design and implementation of the CAVE
TLDR
This paper demonstrates that projection technology applied to virtual-reality goals achieves a system that matches the quality of workstation screens in terms of resolution, color, and flicker-free stereo, and demonstrates that this format helps reduce the effect of common tracking and system latency errors.
Immersive Virtual Video Game Play and Presence: Influences on Aggressive Feelings and Behavior
TLDR
It is predicted that playing a violent video game using an IVET platform would lead to increased presence and aggressive feelings and behavior compared to playing on a less immersive desktop platform, and the results of two experiments supported this hypothesis.
