Introduction

Kris and Petr have been visiting the B2B Hackathon in Brussels, as Kris wrote in his UploadVR article. There we recorded a series of episodes, and this one is about two decades of VR and AR tools for Education.

We sat down with Trond Nilsen who surprised us with the his overwhelming experience in AR and VR scene. While aiming at discussion about Education in VR, we ended up going through non-mainstream events, discoveries and projects in done in the last 20 years.

Topics discussed:

  • VR for education: one time use vs everyday use
  • Ecological Validity of VR Research
  • AR definition & history
  • Tethered vs untethered
  • Intelligent Ontology-driven Games for Teaching Human Anatomy
  • Envelop VR
  • VR for Education
  • Gartner curve - then and now
