WP 2.5. aims at establishing bridges of collaboration between academia and industry as means to ensure the proper usageofVT at Western Balkan HEIs.
WP 2.6. aims at developing guidelines that will provide best user experience in educational content consumption, with an emphasis on VR environments. These will include obtained knowledge and expertise from state-of-the-art approaches and project partners own expertise. Additionally, train-the-trainers’ modules and programs will be developed at each partner HEI.
WP 3 aims at a high quality of deliverables of the project and to ascertain the quality of the process and the commitment to develop a sound framework for devising, implementing, and reporting internal and external evaluation activities.
