Evaluation of virtual reality in Africa: an educational perspective

UNESCO has, since 2000, supported a number of initiatives with the Naledi3d Factory that have explored the potential of Virtual Reality (VR) as a learning tool in Africa, to date in Ethiopia, South Africa and Uganda (summarized in the box). In order to define a way forward in this project area, UNESCO commissioned this report, which evaluates the comparative advantages of applying multimedia and interactive 3D tools to the learning environment.
