Abstract: The use of immersive technology enables high-fidelity simulation at a fraction of the cost of traditional educational simulation. The Virtual Immersive Teaching and Learning initiative provides access to virtual, augmented, and mixed reality simulation for students and faculty across the pedagogical spectrum. Simulation is a proven tool for transforming novice to expert, however traditional simulation modalities are prohibitively expensive for many educational institutions. Immersive simulation provides affordable alternatives for simulation applications ranging from clinical medical scenarios to visualization of astronomical phenomena. Early studies indicate the use of immersive simulation resulted in increased student skills, knowledge, and motivation to learn, however ...
