Immersive experiences, such as virtual & augmentedreality (VR/AR), interactive installations and gamification, offer a level of interactivity and immersion that traditional media, such as lectures and videos, cannot. With immersive experiences, you get to actually participate in the content and make decisions that affect the outcome. Plus, you feel like you’re right in the middle of it all, rather than just observing from the sidelines.
