Virtual reality

Good to see you are interested in virtual reality! 🙂

I started exploring virtual reality in 2008. After a long break from it, I decided to devote more time to it again in 2020 because of its potential for improving the online learning experience for language learners and teachers.

Read about my previous experience with VR.

During my research of the current state of VR in language learning, I came across Immerse – the first virtual reality platform for English language teaching. It was immediately clear to me that this was a platform that could help VR to be widely adopted by language schools. When I was offered the role of Fractional Research Manager at Immerse, I didn’t hesitate to accept it.

In this role, I make research plans, invite researchers and teachers to conduct (action) research on the Immerse platform and support them, and I also write research-based blog posts.
