Role of AR/VR in the education system: How technology is shaping India’s learning space

One of the most significant benefits of Augmented Reality in Learning and Development is that it does not require any hardware investment.

We can experience Augmented Reality using our smartphones or tablets. For example, Augmented Reality application development allows to place the smartphone camera in front of a textbook and see a 2D image turning into a 3D animation.

Educators can use augmented reality to teach whatever subject they need – from the alphabet to geography to chemistry.

VR can be used to teach lots of things, from history to human anatomy.

What is Virtual Learning?

Virtual learning is a learning experience that is enhanced through utilizing computers and/or the internet both outside and inside the facilities of the educational organization. The instruction most commonly takes place in an online environment. The teaching activities are carried out online whereby the teacher and learners are physically separated (in terms of place, time, or both).

What is Augmented Learning?

Augmented Learning is the next step in the evolution of eLearning to enhance the learner’s experience and demystify real world objects and their environment. It is closely associated with Augmented Intelligence and Augmented Reality.

Augmented learning (AL) is the use of real-life experiences, objects and elements that have been recreated on a computer or mobile device to enhance specific educational concepts. An important goal of augmented learning is to align the instructional platform with each learner’s individual needs.

Educators can use augmented reality to teach whatever subject they need – from the alphabet to geography to chemistry.

Difference between Augmented, Virtual and Mixed Reality

1. Augmented Reality is the result of using technology to superimpose information – sounds, images, and text – on the world we see.

AR adds digital elements to a live view often by using the camera on a smartphone.

One of the most popular ways AR has infiltrated everyday life is through mobile games. In 2016, the AR game ‘Pokémon Go’ became a sensation worldwide, with over 100 million estimated users at its peak, according to CNET. It ended up making more than two billion USD and counting, according to Forbes.

2. Mixed Reality (MR), sometimes referred to as hybrid reality, is the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualizations wherephysical and digital objectsco-exist and interact in real time.

3. Virtual Reality is the term used to describe a three-dimensional, computer-generated environment which can explore and interacte with a person. That person becomes part of this virtual world or is immersed within this environment and whilst there, is able to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions.
