    Abstract

    Better educational media that assist in learning have been constantly sought by researchers in the educational technology domain to enhance the outcomes of education. Virtual Reality (VR) has been identified as one of them. Proponents of VR believe that it is an excellent educational tool, which could help to improve performance and conceptual understanding on a specific range of tasks. Nonetheless, there is limited understanding of how VR could enhance the learning outcomes. This paper reviews the types of VR that have been used for teaching and learning, how does VR support constructivist learning and the theoretical framework for a VR learning environment. Further research is suggested for VRbased learning environment.
