How Are Students Immersed by Providing Virtual Reality Technology? The Role of Psychological Distance in Online Flipped Class

Lyu Hongyu

Abstract—Online flipped Class can be optimized by introducing VR technology. By adding VR technology to the online flipped class, the performance of class and students' learning efficiency could be affected. Therefore, we investigate the effects of incorporating VR technology in online flipped classes. In this study, we contend that the effects of VR on online flipped class can be theoretically modelled as users’ attitudes about VR features that influence their psychological distance, which in turn shapes their attitudes and behaviors towards using the learning platform. Finally, we postulate a lab experiment to measure whether the VR technology in flipped class can increase students’ engagement.

Index Terms—Flipped class, virtual reality, learning efficiency.
