In this report, Technavio highlights the increasing number of social VR spaces as one of the key emerging trends driving the global virtual reality market in the education sector:
Increasing number of social VR spaces
In a virtual environment, the users are secluded from the physical world, and they are subjected to a virtual environment. It is expected to bring down the quality of learning as collaborative learning plays an effective role in effective and efficient learning. VR manufacturers are providing platforms that enable collaborative learning in the VR environment to overcome this challenge. This led to the growth of social VR spaces, wherein the students can communicate and connect with other students. VR vendors are increasingly opting for VR spaces considering the criticality of the isolation faced by an individual in a VR and the possibility of developing motion sickness.
“Major players in the market are emphasizing on the incorporation of virtual spaces. Companies are also providing various avatars which supports multiplayer sessions that allow the students to socialize and interact with other users. Such advancements also provide a front row feature wherein the students can be a part of an event or audience and other small groups. Such technological features and advancements are expected to drive the market in the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on education technology.
