Yes. There are two parts to Virtual Reality Education safety:
Physical safety: Teachers and students are trained on the safe use of virtual reality in the physical environment. Teaching and learning occurs in the seated position and hand controls are used to move around and interact in the virtual environment. Users are also taught how to avoid dizziness. As users engage in the technology, they build up stamina and become proficient learners in the virtual reality environment.
Online safety: Oasis XRE downloads a device security system that prohibits students from accessing content that is not related to their course-work.
Typically, students are only in the virtual reality environment for 20-30 mins per class to receive instruction and interact with the content. Teachers use their school or district learning management system to post, track, and grade assignments and tests. Students may complete course assignments inside or outside of the virtual reality learning environment based upon the teacher's course design. If allowed, students may also enter the VR environment "after hours" to collaborate, discuss, complete group projects, review lessons, or complete other learning activities.
