We have been hearing about 360 VR in 3D over the past few years and how three-dimensional virtual reality is bringing changes in different sectors. But when it comes to education we have always thought of a real classroom and have never imagined a situation where all the students will have to sit in a virtual classroom, until the Covid-19 pandemic hit and lockdowns were declared. Even before the pandemic 3D Virtual Tours were used, but not commonly. 3D 360 VR was considered expensive and some even thought that it is complicated and might not help to convey the subjects to the students. People were a bit hesitant to come out of the bubble of old school systems. But when everyone was stuck with no other option other than virtual or online classes, views about using Interactive 3D VR 360 in the education system started to change. Splashed with a charming shine of urban life, UAE is the modern-day hub of ethnicity and iconic architectural structures. It is home to people from different nations and cultures. This has made this country unique and second home to many expats.
3D Interactive Virtual Reality in Education helps to get the Realistic Feel via Virtual Field Trips, Facilitates Interactive Learning and enables the development of Practical Skills without risk factors. 360-degree 3D Virtual Tours also make learning Efficient and Fun apart from allowing exploring the actual campus online. During this pandemic, UAE has again shown its uniqueness by supporting and caring for all people from different countries as their own.
Here, we would like to share some of our ideas and thoughts on how 3D VR 360 facilitates learning and how it can be beneficial for the educational sector in the UAE.
GETTING THE REALISTIC FEEL – VIRTUAL 3D FIELD TRIPS:
We all know it is unsafe to travel during the Pandemic. But how long can we restrict our children from exploring the world? They need to learn and grow. Every day is an important day in their life. UAE is a fast-growing country with inexorable development and the Children of the UAE too is ready to keep up the pace of development. But should the Covid-19 protocol of stay at home stop them from learning? 3D 360-Degree Panoramic Virtual Reality Tour with VR Glass plays an important role in the development of kids during this pandemic where they are confined to their homes. With 3D 360 Panoramic Virtual Reality Tour with VR technology, you can take your child on a trip and they get the chance to explore the world. Yes, you heard it right. Virtual Field Trips in 3D 360 give you the real experience. Children or anyone can travel and explore sitting at their home. With Walkthrough Style Virtual Tours, you can move around the place and you can visit multiple places even if these areas are not closer to each other.
VR FACILITATES INTERACTIVE LEARNING:
Students, be it of any age group, like learning when the ‘fun’ factor is there. With the help of 3D 360 Views, children can avoid mugging up without literally understanding the concept. 3D Visualization helps to understand the concepts clearly. Be it science or any other subject, the tough concepts or theories can be explained with visual examples. It is more registered in your brain when you see it. 3D animations and 360 Degree views boost the learning experience. The students just need to wear the 360 VR headset whenever they wanted to take a deep dive into the ocean of science or any other subjects.
3D ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNS WITH VR 360:
UAE is known for its unique architectural monuments, buildings, and structures like the World’s tallest building – Burj Khalifa, Dubai Frame, 7 Star Hotel – Burj Al Arab, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, and many more. Nothing should stop the learning class of UAE to be innovative and come up with more ideas.
Students learning 3D can get more real with their Photorealistic 3D Renders to create those beautiful innovative ideas and showcase them as if they are real. They can create a 3D 360 VR and get a real experience. They can create Villa Clusters, Apartments, Buildings, Housing Facilities, and many more. For example, if they create 3D renders of an apartment, they can combine these renders and get the real feel of walking in the same apartment, room to room, with the help of 360 VR technology. This will help the students be more creative and to understand the errors or practicality of different scenarios in a better way.
PRACTICAL SKILLS WITHOUT THE RISK FACTOR VIA VIRTUALLY REAL 3D SCENARIOS:
When it comes to learning practical skills, students love to try them out. But sometimes the training for some skills may include risk factors and the real-life scenario will not be entertained in such training. For example, if you want to give fire safety training for a kid, it is risky to take them near a real fire. So, this ends in showing merely a video tutorial. Now with 3D 360 Interactive VR technology, a realistic feel can be given to the learner. They can do all the drills as if it is real with real-world scenarios created with 3D 360 CGI.
An experiment by Google Daydream Labs revealed that people who were trained with VR-based HSE training learned faster than people who were merely shown video tutorials.
LANGUAGE TRAINING MADE EASIER WITH INTERACTIVE 3D 360 VR:
All cannot travel around different countries for weeks / months to learn different languages. There may be cost barriers or mobility issues for many. 3D Rendered 360 Virtual Tours with VR gave Language Training a new face. It is important to listen and speak on a daily basis to be an expert in any language. Now with Fully Immersive VR 3D 360 content, this is possible. Virtual Reality simulations trick your brain to think that the experiences are real.
Now many are in a dilemma that they can’t travel to UAE for higher education.
EFFICIENT DISTANCE LEARNING WITH VR 360 3D CLASSROOMS:
Distance Learning (DL) is the word of today. With the Covid-19 outbreak, the life of people has changed drastically especially where students of any age have to sit at home and learn. If the technology wasn’t advanced, the education part would have become a big question mark. Even though Distance Learning was already there, it wasn’t popular and had many flaws. Unlike real classroom learning, Distance Learning had lacked the ‘Interactive Learning’ factor. Now with 3D VR 360 Animation Rendering Design technology, DL has moved to the next level. Students can interact, project themselves, and explore apart from getting the real feel of being in a classroom forgetting that they are in fact at home.
LEARNING MADE FUN WITH 3D 360 CGI VR:
Kids love to play games. What if learning is done by playing games? Kids learn and enjoy at the same time. Learning is never a word of boredom for kids. Now with VR, learning can be combined with games. This not only increases the fun element but makes a substantial difference in the learnability of the concept of different subjects. 3D 360 Virtual Reality also allows teachers to coach students based on the visual or auditory sensory perception of each individual enabling the integration of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, NLP, in education.
EXPLORE THE CAMPUS WITH 3D 360 VR WALKTHROUGHS:
When you think of higher education, the first thing that comes to your mind may be the different sectors or areas of study and where you can find that particular course. What if you find the course to be pursued in two different countries and you don’t have enough budget to visit these countries or inquire more and explore the campus facilities? VR Walkthrough 360 comes to the rescue of both the institution and the student in such scenarios. Educational Institutions can design spectacular views of their campuses in 3D and students get the opportunity to explore them sitting at their home. In this way Educational Facilities can be showcased to more students and students can save their money on visiting the campus in person.
