New Media and Sources to discover the world of Virtual Reality
We are in the midst of the information and social networking era, the era of knowledge and live broadcasting. And unfortunately, it is also a strange era, with a society trying to recover from the ravages that the global Covid-19 pandemic is still leaving behind.
But as in all moments of crisis, it is time to reinvent ourselves. And if there is one positive thing we can take away from this strange situation that 2020 has brought us, it has been the possibility of realising that there is a need for change in certain aspects of society.
We have seen how many companies and academic institutions have struggled against all odds not to see their activity diminished. Telework, or concepts such as distance learning, has suddenly and forcibly taken on relevance in the social, political and business agenda.
But the truth is that there was a need for it. New technologies such as Virtual Reality have positioned themselves as clear alternatives for the future when it comes to establishing a new normality in the rhythms of work, training and learning.
But at this point, we find a great lack of knowledge on the part of the general population of aspects such as the advantages, benefits, uses or approaches that new technologies such as VR can have to continue working, training and learning without the need to go to a fixed place of work or study.
In an era in which, as we said, more information is uploaded to the network in one hour than in the whole previous decade, many media interested in disseminating information about the world of VR have emerged, as it could not be otherwise.
Podcasts, Blogs, groups in social networks. There is a lot to choose from, but, of course, it is the Internet, where you have to know how to find the needle in the haystack, to find the best sources of reliable, up to date and honest information.
Therefore, in this article we will make a selection of the best Podcasts about VR.
