Fordham University students are using virtual reality (VR) technology to build professional business skills in simulated environments.
One simulation has participants learning to network among groups of strangers in a room, while others have them leading negotiations at business meetings, or making presentations before colleagues.
The rest of the class watches and critiques their anonymous virtual avatars on a projector, in real time.
The Fordham professor co-leading the class, Lyron Bentovim, also is CEO of the Glimpse Group, an augmented reality/VR company providing the technology for the class. Bentovim said over time, he expects VR will grow to be a feature in classrooms at every level of education.
