It continues to manifest new tools such as virtual reality (VR) in a student’s learning experience. The number of VR educational users is expected to increase to around 15 million by 2025, according to a report about virtual and augmented reality published by Goldman Sachs. 

While 18% of U.S. higher education institutions have fully deployed VR according to a survey reported by EdTech, around 60% of all institutions are expected to champion VR in creating immersive learning experiences by 2021. The expected increase is derived from the demand to use it in institutions amid improving VR technology and its falling costs.
