Virtual reality tours of WW1 battlefields offer students a different type of history lesson.
You often hear in content marketing and other related technical writing about how content is about storytelling. Virtual reality (VR) is opening up new avenues of storytelling in e-learning. This BBC News link goes to a video that talks about how students are being taught about World War One through immersive storytelling that has a historian who narrates and acts as a guide through the fields of Somme, and puts them in the trenches at the same time. The student response is fantastic.
How are you creating your content? VR is already popular in the gaming world–how can you use it for other applications in technical writing? I bet there are loads of ways.
