Abstract: There is a growing enthusiasm to use VR to improve remote student learning experiences. However, incongruities between students’ virtual embodiment– as avatars in the virtual environment – and physical embodiment – from their biological bodies – can significantly impact them. We observed a university class poster session held entirely in an immersive Mozilla Hubs environment. We found that incongruities in embodiment created both challenges and significant opportunities for students to collaborate and learn in a shared space.
