Oculus4languages is a non-profit project that aims to explore the possibilities of immersive virtual reality in language teaching.
We believe that VR will change the way we communicate in the very near future. This will have an effect on many areas, including distance language teaching.
We offer free online Spanish courses using VR and webcam.
We've completed phase 1 and we're looking for people for the phase 2. Finally, on phase 3 we'll analyze all the gathered data to obtain a better understanding of how VR can be used for distance language teaching.
The courses will be run by Borja Herrera, a university teacher, who is leading this research project.
We have finished our research, so we don't need more volunteers at the moment.
1. Not having studied Spanish before
2. To be a native English speaker or be fluent in the language
3. Having access to a webcam
4. To be motivated
Duration: 7 weeks
14 sessions (twice a week) of 1h 15min each. Considering the individual tasks there's a total work of 34 hours.
No more volunteers needed at the moment.
