Welcome to ISMAR 2019

The IEEE ISMAR is the leading international academic conference in the fields of Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality. The symposium is organized and supported by the IEEE Computer Society, IEEE VGTC .

The congress organized by BSIG, BUAA and BIT will be held at Friendship Hotel in Beijing (China), on October 14-18, 2019.

Virtual reality in education and training | Virtual space for students

The rapid development technologies could not but affect the educational process. And although VR (virtual reality) technologies (just like writing prompts apps) are no longer something new, they began to be used in education relatively recently.

A group of analysts from ABI Research claims that the global VR market will grow to $5-6 billion by 2022. And this, according to experts, is only the beginning.

We are already aware of successful examples of using virtual reality for education. For instance:

1. VR training for gallbladder surgery has been successfully tested at Yale University. The VR group was 29% faster and 6x less likely to make mistakes.

2. A study on the Impact of Virtual Reality on Academic Performance was conducted in Beijing. The children were taught the same discipline, but one group - using the classical method, and the second - using VR. As a result, a test was carried out. The first group was 73% successful, and the second 93% successful. In addition, the VR group showed a deeper understanding of the topic and better consolidated the knowledge gained (based on the test results after two weeks).

3. In 2018, Cambridge anthropology students from East China explored the symbols painted along the Giza plateau's tomb. A virtual classroom was created, and three-dimensional models of the objects under study were loaded. Students controlled their virtual avatars, being thousands of kilometers from the real research site.

4. Google has been working on the creation of virtual tours of world sights for several years already. For example, at the end of 2019, a virtual tour of the Palace of Versailles was launched using 132,000 photographs. There are also tours of the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, Buckingham Palace in London, and other cultural heritage sites. And their number will only grow every year.

Studying using virtual reality is based on immersive technologies - virtual expansion of reality, which allows you to better perceive and understand the surrounding reality. That is, they literally immerse a person in a given event environment. This approach will greatly ease the students' struggles to write essays about virtual reality.

There are several advantages of the immersive approach:

Visibility

Virtual space allows you to examine in detail objects and processes that are impossible or very difficult to trace in the real world. For example, the human body's anatomical features, the work of various mechanisms, and the like. Flying into space, diving hundreds of meters under water, traveling through the human body - VR offers tremendous opportunities. 

Concentration

In the virtual world, external stimuli practically do not affect a person. For example, they can concentrate entirely on the research about virtual reality, analyze the material and assimilate it better.

Involvement

The scenario of the learning process can be programmed and controlled with high precision. Students can conduct chemistry experiments in virtual reality, see outstanding historical events, and solve complex problems in a more fun and understandable way. By and large, soon, this will exclude the need to get academic writing help.

Efficiency

Based on the already carried out experiments, it can be argued that the effectiveness of training using VR is at least 10% higher than that of the classic format. Shortly, every college essay writing service will hire graduates taught with the help of VR. Thus, future professional writers at EssayUSA would be of another quality level, that's for sure.
