Designing Learning for the Metaverse: An Expert's View – Part one.


In this episode of Expert Views, Karl Kapp, Professor of Instructional Technology at Bloomsburg University, provides insight into what the Metaverse can offer that other learning approaches lack, and how we can access it. Read on and watch the video to find out about common misconceptions about the Metaverse, using it to create new and immersive learning experiences, and more.

Incorporating the virtual world of the Metaverse into digital learning programmes can help to deepen the learning experience in a way that makes it emotive, immersive, and memorable. Rather than simply recreating classrooms, the Metaverse provides the ability to craft creative learning environments that serve to engage and invigorate those that use them.

For Karl, the Metaverse represents an incredibly useful tool for L&D teams. Here is what he thinks the Metaverse can give us over a more typical digital learning experience:

  1. A sense of really being in the virtual environment and interacting with the content.
  2. The sense of reality helps to foster more emotive and memorable learning experiences.
  3. A safe, virtual learning playground to experiment in.

Watch the video to discover what else the Metaverse can offer, just how accessible it actually is, and why it might be the learning solution your team needs.
