We always hear that all this time VR has always been used for watching videos, movies and also playing games. But did you know that it turns out that VR also has many positive and helpful impacts in various sectors of life? Let’s see what these benefits are.
First, let’s look at the benefits of using VR in education sectors:
- Students can learn about a place without having to visit the place in person
When learning about the solar system or geography of a country, sometimes not all places can be visited directly. Therefore, the existence of VR makes it easier for students and teachers to learn about it.
- Students can travel back in time
History is one of those lessons where students and teachers must ‘go back’ to the past. The existence of VR helps make history lessons more fun because students can be invited ‘directly’ to return to the past.
- The ease of teaching and learning between teachers and students during the pandemic
During the COVID-19 pandemic, schools were conducted online. No wonder if students become stressed because of learning because of the unusual learning system. The existence of VR helps students and teachers to more easily explain lessons from biology, history, geography, and so on. Teachers can also invite their students to take online tours to museums, zoos, etc. through this VR technology.
Second, let’s see the benefits of using VR in the medical fields:
- Reduce the risk of malpractice
For medical students, they will be obliged to follow a practice. And there are many cases heard that medical students make mistakes and result in the patient’s death. By using VR technology, this risk can be minimized. Students can still make mistakes and learn from them, but without losing the patient’s life.
- Cure phobia, and can be used as a virtual counselling
Lately many people suffer from trauma and phobias. But they don’t want to be seen as visiting psychiatrists for a variety of reasons. The use of VR here, VR can help trauma healing and also provide virtual counseling without having to meet in person. This is of course very helpful, especially during a pandemic like this.
Third, the benefits of using VR in business sectors:
VR can make businesses more efficient in terms of both time and money. By using VR, HR can conduct virtual employee training, which saves money, time and effort. Those thousands of miles away can join meetings virtually without having to pay for expensive airline tickets. Likewise, when shopping online, buyers can try virtually whether the item is good or not.
- Minimizing the risk of accidents at work
We know that many accidents happen while at work. VR can help reduce the risk of accidents in the workplace by conducting virtual observations when conditions do not allow it to come in person. For example, in an abandoned development area, etc. Work partners who are far from the location can still monitor and correct existing errors through VR.
So, now we know that VR can be used in various sectors ranging from education to medical to business. VR is not only a technology for relaxing but also for working and making our lives easier. You can learn and see the implementation of VR through www.arutala.id. (Putri-Fortuna/News)
