Encouraging results in study into Holographic Teaching

The results into a study available in ALT’s Research in Learning Technology carried out by Nai Li & David Lefevre from Imperial College London, make for interesting reading. The full title of the study is ‘ Holographic teaching presence: participant experiences of interactive synchronous seminars delivered via holographic videoconferencing’ and its purpose was to identify potential advantages of using holographic videoconferencing to deliver seminars within higher education as compared to the use of alternative non-holographic videoconferencing. The results are generally quite positive, but as the authors explain, this may in part be due to the novelty factor. It’s clear there is plenty of room for further research in this area.
