EAP Student Feedback: It was an incredible experience because it was like being there. The VR gives you the opportunity to visit a place that I thought impossible to visit. The VR is an excellent educational resources.
EAP Student Feedback: The experience using PlainVR was really fun. We had the opportunity to see the Cambodian temples. We also could see the elephant and the people walking around, I think this application is really helpful for the student to interact with different themes.
EAP Student Feedback: It was an amazing experience to be allowed to visit a place without actually being there. I have never seen Google Cardboard before, and I think it is such a great invention, but of course mixed with some more technology. The places I see, they looked so real. I definitely will be looking for some other places using my device, Google Cardboard and YouTube videos.
