Digital credentials are easy to view, hare and verify.

Virtual reality and Augmented reality:

Since learners were bound by four walls, to increase engagement and to make the platforms more interactive EdTech companies enabled Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.

Virtual reality is a simulation generated through the computerisation of 3D images and environments. Learners can interact with these virtual platforms that feel physical or real.

Augmented reality is a type of Virtual reality that augments the digital elements and computer-generated environment and make them feel like a real-world through sensory modulations.
