Desktop-AR. Practical implications for the global Education sector.
Immersive Virtual- and Artificial Reality is on track to become a tool used by educators worldwide. Some hindrances to this progress are the accessibility of the technology, its cost and the training needed to satisfy the confidence of educators and students alike.
