The goals of the lab are to advance knowledge on Virtual Reality as a learning tool, accelerate the use of VR in education and to share gained knowledge and experience. To achieve these goals, we do fundamental research, teach courses, organise workshops and masterclasses, develop applications and support students and advise organisations on developments in this field.
