概要 There is an increasing amount of research and development happening around the use of virtual and augmented reality in education, also known as immersive learning. This case study seeks to merge vocational training and language learning and explore the application of virtual reality in tourism education. The study was conducted with 22 students in the Department of Global Tourism at a university in western Japan. The students were first trained to create virtual tours of their hometowns with Google Tour Creator. They then guided classmates on virtual tours of their hometowns in English, using smartphones and mini VR glasses. A survey study was conducted following the tours to evaluate students’ experience in terms of virtual presence, attention and satisfaction, perceived usefulness and future use of VR, as well as the benefits and challenges of the activity. The findings of this study have important implications for the use of virtual reality in tourism education.
