Overview of event

As an attendee of this event, you will have the opportunity to see Oral Roberts University’s Global Learning Center, first hand. The university’s global approach is to use augmented and virtual reality (AVR) to serve on campus and online students. Students abroad can immerse themselves in 3D lessons asynchronously or join a live classroom.

Over the past 12 months, Augmented and Virtual Reality technology has advanced in all sectors – with applications revolutionizing the interactions between human and machine, and humans and virtual reality.

In education in particular, AR and VR applications are rapidly changing the way we are learning, providing experiential learning by simulating real-world environments.

AR and VR increases student engagement levels, and provides insights into what they will experience in various environments when they enter the workforce.

The technology is particularly interesting for visual learners and students with learning challenges – providing alternatives to more traditional teaching methods.

A recent study shows that “93 percent of teachers say their students would be excited to use virtual reality and 83 percent say that virtual reality might help improve learning outcomes.”

Oral Roberts University and the Education Conference Network are pleased to partner on this exciting event – held at Oral Roberts University’s Global Learning Center, which is a world innovator and leader in AR/VR learning. The conference will provide delegates with a great opportunity to interact with the latest technologies, and see how they can be integrated within curriculum.


The event promises a full and exciting agenda. For more information take a look here.
