About this Research Topic
On the other hand, the transition from educational and training environments to online environments, synchronous or asynchronous, raises the need to generate simulated environments in which different people can interact as if they shared physical space. The training metaverse provides the logical support for this type of interaction to take place in a given cyberspace so that users interact as avatars (images or other graphic resources). Certain technological tools such as glasses or other VR devices make it possible to achieve this ubiquitous learning experience in the formative metaverse. The main objective of this special issue is to explore the new trends and applications of VR in education and training for professionals in different areas, and the impact of these technologies on the teaching and learning process.
This Research Topic is open to submissions of original research articles subject to rigorous peer review, covering new developments or applications of VR technologies to training environments or studies that address the impact of the application of VR in training contexts. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Applications of virtual reality in the metaverse for training purposes.
- New technical developments in virtual reality applied to teaching and learning.
- Implementation of training actions based on virtual reality.
- Impact of virtual reality in education and professional training.
- Virtual reality applications for sustainable education.
- Perception of the use of virtual reality technologies by the different agents of the teaching and learning process.
