Safe Isolation – a Virtual Reality case

This VR (Virtual Reality) case study will enable the learners to view and interact with the working environments in the safety of the classroom environment.

Learners should explore at their own pace giving them greater depth of the working environment than traditional resources such as posters, hand-outs and books.

How to watch the VR video:

  • On a computer you can use the mouse to move around the room.
  • On Tablets and Smartphones. The use of hand held mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads or similar devices will give a better result with the ability to use the real time motion tracking sensors. You can download VR viewing apps from Google Play or APP Store
