Extended Reality in Teaching

Duration: 03/2023 - 12/2023

Project Description

The use of Extended Reality (XR) in education is an emerging trend that has the potential to revolutionize the way students learn. Despite its potential benefits, the integration of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technology into curricula is still limited in many educational institutions. AR/VR technology can enhance traditional teaching methods by providing students with immersive and interactive experiences. This technology can create virtual environments that simulate real scenarios, allowing students to practice skills and gain experience without risk.

However, there is currently a gap in research-oriented teaching in the field of AR/VR technology. The absence of XR in academic teaching created the need for this forward-looking teaching method and led to the realization of a unified XR approach at TU Wien, culminating in the project "XR in Teaching". This project aims to develop an integrated knowledge and learning platform that provides students and educators with the necessary tools to incorporate AR/VR technology into their teaching and learning practices. By leveraging the benefits of AR/VR technology, this project aims to enhance the learning experience for students, promote interdisciplinary collaboration, and prepare students for the digital future.

This existing gap in research-oriented teaching in the area of XR-supported teaching is intended to be closed in the "XR in Teaching" project by establishing an XR roadmap for TU Wien, as well as best-practice teaching scenarios for students and educators at TU Wien.


•  TU Wien benefits from the development of innovative program and infrastructure and positions itself as a driver of innovation in the field of modern teaching offerings.

•  Contributes under the motto "Technology for People" to the profiling of TU Wien as an innovative university in the rapidly growing Industry 4.0 landscape.

•  Students and lecturers are supported through best-practice VR teaching scenarios.

•  TU Wien benefits from a scientifically developed XR roadmap.
