Phantom Touch in VR at VARTEL, Johannesburg

On December 1-2nd 2022 Sasha Alexdottir took part at VARTEL (Virtual & Augmented Reality Technology-Enhanced Learning) Conference that took place in Johannesburg, South Africa and I was awarded the Best Presentation Award.

The topic of my presentation was: “Phantom Touch in VR Phenomenon and its Potential Use in the Educational Field”.

I hope that my talk inspired more people to consider using Virtual Reality in education, specifically in relation to mental health and immersive education. VR opens new opportunities for studying various disciplines and also provides new ways of stress handling and relaxation, especially during the intensive exams sessions and when studying away from home.

Please get in touch if you want to know more how Phantom Touch can be used in education.
