It is a new field, but it is gaining ground. The value of an original piece of art often exceeds that of a copy or digital file. Easy to start and run with a wide range of possibilities for further exploration and innovation. An artist’s work is interpretive, meant to arouse a response in the viewer’s emotions and intellect in accordance with what the artist believes. A good piece of art never fails to leave you speechless. The use of engaging images in advertising may boost a brand’s visual identity and inspire people to make purchases. Because of this, artists and other creatives may now learn about the potential of electronic art more easily. To do this, you will need a variety of different kinds of creative abilities and resources. As well as being the fundamental training—technical abilities with a thorough understanding of both science and art–it utilizes computer-related software and design tools to develop and produce artworks.
Virtual reality is a kind of expression, a medium of art communication, and an interactive medium style when it is combined with digital media art. Virtual reality technology allows users to finish this interactive art form via the use of digital media art. As a result, this combination reduces the gap between the experience of the work of art and the information conveyed by the artist. Digital media artists often use dynamic visuals as the basis for their work. Sophisticated sensing devices are able to gather and react to data signals such as head movements and even ocular rotations in order to allow the user to participate in the whole interaction process. Data may be gathered from a wide range of sensors, including those that measure hydraulics and other fluids, as well as those that are electromagnetic, optical, auditory, inertial, or hybrid in nature, a wearable sensor-based technology that use a variety of classification algorithms to identify autistic movements.

As a result, virtual reality gadgets have become more adaptable, and user experience has improved. A wide range of areas, including education, business, culture, and the arts, has already benefited from virtual reality gadgets.
In the same way that traditional art and computer algorithms are distinct, digital media art is likewise different. It is a mix of the two, in a way. As a result, three distinct virtual reality technologies are used in this study to mobilise students’ characteristics in various areas, and exploratory experiments are conducted on these teaching approaches and compared to standard teaching methods. Analysis of our experiment’s outcomes is based on student scores and subjective evaluations.
2. Literature Survey
When art was first discovered, humans were limited to seeing it with their eyes. Virtual reality technology, on the other hand, has made it possible for individuals to see aspects of art that they previously could not see. In fact, it manages to create an illusion of realism that is not based on anything actual. New windows are opened for \shumans to perceive the environment using diverse artificial \sintelligence technologies, making the human experience \sraised to a new level.

According to Sepasgozar , case-based storytelling is the teaching method used in the development and implementation of new virtual tour models for on-the-job training. Student behaviour was analysed in order to determine whether it might help establish a new VTAM (virtual teaching acceptance models) as a hypothetical structure used for gauging the adoption of educational technologies. Perceived usefulness, engagement, social presence, contextual learning, and immersion are just a few of the characteristics that make up VTAM’s blend of technology and learning aspects .
Followers were divided into two equal groups, group A and group B, each with fifty students. A one-week training programmer on “developing corporate communication skills with a specific emphasis on speaking” was delivered to these two groups. Group A students were taught how to have oral talks without utilizing VR or AR, while group B students were taught how to use various VR and AR technologies in various areas such as oral presentations, impromptu, and group discussions. Data gathering and student views were examined and interpreted after five weeks of continuous training utilizing VR and AR equipment.
Interacting with coworkers, running a meeting or a business networking event, answering interview questions, giving a presentation or a keynote speech, and offering feedback to peers were just a few of the situations they faced during their learning term. During the final week of the course, students were given a test and asked to provide comments on it. Students in group A were able to achieve 30 percent perfection in the prescribed speaking activity, whereas students in group B were able to achieve 60 percent perfection while speaking with confidence. According to the comments, 70% of students regarded the course to be good and beneficial. With the exercises built using virtual reality and augmented reality technologies and applications, they might acquire greater confidence and improve their communication abilities. As a result, the hypothesis is not null. The current research in the near future, virtual reality, and augmented reality are projected to be major technologies. Although the gaming business is one of the most well-known applications of VR and AR, the technology is not confined to it. Some business schools have already integrated VR and AR, and the number will undoubtedly rise in the future, benefitting the majority of students.
This study exclusively uses students from one profession as test subjects for experimental studies, ignoring the fact that students from various majors have diverse logical reasoning styles. As a result, the author will raise the size of the sample and kind of study items in the next research project. Figure 1 shows that the listening is important. Figure 1 indicates that the new class’s hearing and speaking scores are much higher than the control class’s. Overall, the experimentation class’s average writing score is somewhat higher than the control class’s, which might be related to strong language abilities and outstanding linguistic awareness. Table 1 gives the sample data of the age range of the experimentation class.
E-commerce is one of the fields where virtual reality is proving to be beneficial to businesses. VR also ushers in a whole new era in professional business. This technique is being used extensively by trainers in this field. Because of the diverse nature of VR and AR, the student may glance about the room and communicate with individuals who are accessible online. The student will be able to adjust to the circumstance more quickly and effortlessly. Learners will be able to picture the project more clearly, which is a crucial component in the corporate world. Virtual reality helps the student to vividly picture the buildings as they develop them, saving time and money. AR also allows a student to engage and immerse themselves in the actual world via a range of applications. As a result, virtual reality and augmented reality are a benefit to architects, engineers, and architectural learners. This technology would allow for virtual tours of numerous sites. It is regarded as one of the most important aspects of the corporate world, and it is advantageous to those who work in the real estate market. The builder may provide their customers a virtual tour of the property to assist them picture the location or layout of their home, allowing them to make a better selection without wasting time.
The app “VR Scenario” helps prepare the student for spontaneous speaking. The student may improve their rapid thinking abilities by utilizing numerous business-related presentation slides using this software. Every thirty seconds, the slide changes. The student must picture the slide and talk in accordance with it. During the speech, his or her English-speaking abilities are assessed, and quick feedback is given so that the learner may comprehend the error and improve his or her skills. Sample research was done for a group of hundred students, taking into account all of these advantages. Algorithm 1 gives VR-based ANN for English dialogue samples.
Educators, according to the constructivism viewpoint of students, are the presenters of knowledge, but this does not imply that they are the authority of knowledge or that they may force their particular deeper knowledge on educators. Teachers must pay attention to students’ comprehension of their own knowledge since knowledge is derived from and belongs to students’ own system of knowledge. Teachers may only advise pupils on how to improve or expand their knowledge. Students should not be passive recipients of new information; they should be actively involved in the production and creation of new information. As a result, instruction must be classroom and professor, allowing pupils to learn on their own shown in Figure 2
Each item in random access to teaching has a particular learning goal and emphasis so that learners may make a leap in their comprehension, and it includes the following teaching connections. It gives the pupils with a circumstance relevant to the core material of the current learning issue and then randomly enters the learning. Group collaborative learning entails a group discussion of information gained in a variety of contexts Figure 3.
Table 2 highlights the learning ecosystem’s design; education must be supported and encouraged rather than tightly regulated; the online learning ought to be a place that encourages and supports knowledge.
4. Results and Discussion
VR technology may be used to help teaching by simulating anything. Smart technology simulations produce what pupils are exposed to throughout the practice process, ensuring student safety. The second factor is practicality. The relevance of students’ practical competence is emphasized in situational education using VR technology. Students’ interests are confined to a few areas in everyday instructional activities, and space is limited. The training methods and experience method are not the same as in prior schooling, and the students’ experiences are also not the same. Comparisons of various methods are presented in Table 3.
The essential needs of VR-based situational teaching include physical equipment, such as computer hardware, applications, software, VR glasses, and gamepad operators; instructors should be experienced in utilizing VR technology on the basis of suitable hardware and equipment shown in Figure 4
Respectability: the educational material must be within a student’s accepted level, and the scenario arrangement must be realistic and adhere to curricular requirements. Various methods that are favorable to extending students’ original thinking; the information is genuine, and the educational scenario is more visualized; and repeat experience to lessen the influence of the teaching environment are some of the benefits of situation education based on virtual reality technology Figure 5
The third factor is life. The goal of situational education with VR technology is to keep it as near to reality as possible while yet allowing students to enhance their cognitive skills. Meet the training goals, and create and administer the programmer in accordance with the requirements shown in Figure 6.
The above Figure 7 clearly explains about incorporated public speaking that incorporates virtual reality and augmented reality technology may provide learners with the best opportunities to improve their communication skills.
The current research found that utilizing VR and AR in English teaching and learning may help students improve business language abilities. The research looks at a variety of prospective pedagogical apps/tools for improving communication skills in a variety of business settings. A mixed methodology study demonstrates how virtual reality technologies may be used to enhance English communication abilities. It discusses how different VR applications may pique learners’ attention and passion, as well as several strategies for improving Business English. Future study in this area may be explored in future studies. For example, study would include more respondents with varying levels of English language ability and education to explore how to fulfil the desire for virtual and augmented designs in different settings, as well as the elements that impact collaboration in different activities. Finally, it would be good if augmented reality and AR/VR could be a common educational tool. Because of the motivating components and their reliance on mobile smart phones, these products are most important to young postgraduate trainers. The use of virtual reality and augmented reality technologies in corporate public speaking may give learners with the finest possibilities for enhancing their communication abilities.
