White Papers

Insights from virtual reality enhanced teaching

Prof. Dr. David Wuttke explains in a white paper experiences, findings and recommendations when using VR in lectures.


Virtual Reality (VR) has great potential, which is still vastly untapped in management education. The COVID-19 pandemic forced us to teach remotely and search for meaningful alternatives to online video communication tools. The team of Prof. Dr. David Wuttke, Assistant Professor for Supply Chain Management of TUM School of Management at TUM Campus Heilbronn explored the use of a virtual classroom environment in two courses in the summer term of 2021. In our solution, students and faculty were represented by avatars and communicated in a digital representation of a real classroom.


Why this white paper? We want to share a modern way of online teaching. We want to publish our lessons learned and hope that the insights on technical effort, didactic approaches, and organizational aspects are valuable for others who would like to embark on our journey.
