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 online Spanish courses via the Oculus Rift Platform / HTC Vive.
From your impressions we will gather useful data that will be analysed and used to obtain a better understanding of how VR can be used for distance language teaching.
Finally, all this work will be captured in a doctoral thesis.
The courses will be run by Borja Herrera, a university teacher, who is leading this research project.
Watch how it works
There will be two kinds of groups; one of them will use the VR platform and the other a computer with a webcam, so even if you don’t have a VR equipment you can join us!
1. Not having studied Spanish before
2. To have access to an Oculus Rift / HTC Vive or computer with webcam
3. To be motivated
15 hours of independent work + 19 hours of virtual class (1h15 per session)
Two 1h15 sessions of virtual class per week. We will set a time once we know the students’ availability
The webcam courses will be held at the beginning of November. Click on "join us" if you're interested an complete the form. We are not looking for more VR users but we might run more courses in the future. Write us an email if you're interested.
We've conducted a pilot study wich has been very useful to redo and improve the materials
