The COVID-19 pandemic, and the accompanying lockdowns and social distancing guidelines in place to halt its spread, has fundamentally changed basic patterns of human activity at an unprecedented scale and speed. One sector that’s been greatly affected: K-12 and university education.
Put simply, the massive shift to remote work has been accompanied by a similar shift to e-learning as millions of students around the world learn from the safety of their home computers. This shift presents challenges: much as in remote work, teachers and students alike complain that moving from the physical to the digital classroom has resulted in a poor “user experience” which reduces student engagement and decreases teacher effectiveness.
As e-learning and remote education become prevalent, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) are expected to play a critical role in shaping user experience. When applied correctly, these innovative technologies can make the learning experience enjoyable and engaging—for students and educators alike.
Whether the future of post-pandemic education lies in the physical classroom, digital e-learning, or, most likely, a hybrid of the two, AR/VR will become an increasingly common feature of the 21st Century classroom.
