Virtual/Augmented Reality

The Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) has initiated to incorporate Virtual and Augmented reality into the education to make it more realistic and futuristics.

In education, new technologies are used to improve the process of learning. The virtual/augmented reality is being more and more used in the education, enabling the student to find out, to explore and to build his own knowledge. VR/AR is especially effective in subjects where an interactive environment is needed. VR/AR also offers an immersive experience, involvement and promoting active learning.

Some of the benefits of incorporating AR/VR in education are:

  • Learn better through experience
  • Sparks the imagination and encourages creative thinking
  • VR engages students
  • Inclusive/immersive classroom experience


STEM Education

STEM Education, at its core, simply means educating students in four specific disciplines, namely, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (collectively shortened as STEM). Instead of training students in any one of these domains, STEM combines all four in an interdisciplinary and applied approach, so as to better equip students to have a career and considering real-world applications.

STEM education has grown in recent years as a curriculum that aims to skill students by presenting a cohesive learning platform that is largely based on real-world applications. It underpins the foundational stage of many sectors, ranging from healthcare to aviation and much more and is often integral to an organisation and thus is becoming an ever-more important field for students.
