VR Apps for Collaborative Language Learning: A Comparison and Contrast
To assist teachers and learners in HyFlex learning settings, the presenter will make a comparison and contrast of VR apps that can support collaborative language learning. Apps such as Mozilla Hubs, Virbela Open Campus, Frame VR, Spatial, and Engage have been selected due to cross-platform compatibility and minimal or no cost addition. The audience will get familiar with the functions of these apps and be able to make an informed choice that serves them well.
