Virtual and Augmented Reality Articles- for those who are new to the technologies

I have produced a list of AR and VR articles that could be useful for students and/or staff who are new to the technologies.  I limited it to 5 articles in each section so it wouldn’t be overwhelming for students.  All articles are on the BU library system and are full text.


We are hoping to publish our systematic review on HE and AR/VR later this year, so that will provide a more holistic list of suitable literature.
