'Learning to present with VR glasses works'

Learning to present for a virtual audience - with VR glasses - seems to be at least as effective as for a real audience. This is evident from the research that Stan van Ginkel of Hogeschool Utrecht performed among students.

The students gave their presentation with tailor-made software, in which a virtual audience responds to the performance of the presenter.

The first results are positive: students experienced the feedback from the VR glasses as 'detailed and analytical'.

The research project is part of an innovation program of HU-Institute Archimedes, where students are trained as teachers in secondary and secondary education. The software will be further developed in the coming period.

Van Ginkel has been conducting research with twelve professionals into the possibilities of using virtual and augmented reality in training.
