  1. Using virtual reality in education sector can encourage the enthusiasm of students for what they are interested to study. You see the other key point here is that you can study at home with the same resources and virtually anywhere with just a mobile device and VR headset. The fact that VR can immerse us in life-like content can help students get exposure to various work environments. This is what we can call the right mix of education and entertainment.
