Lessons are more interesting and information is perceived better with assistance of VAR. Through the learning activities conducted in VR CAVE and with the aid of head-mounted display (HMD), participants are able to experience the immersive VR environment and better understand the learning effectiveness from the learners' perspective. In addition, the advantages of using VAR in learning and teaching and the methodology of VAR lesson planning will be examined in the workshop.
