As part of the international master's degree program me EMC at RWTH Aachen University, a VR exercise in the underground mine environment VR-Mine was carried out for the first time in this summer semester. Due to the still current corona protection regulations, the VR exercise was streamed live via Zoom. The students from several countries had the opportunity to follow the audio and video of the VR goggles and at the same time observe the student acting in the VR world via video and ask him questions or guide him.Initial results from the evaluation of the VR exercise show that the use of VR helps the students to understand the learning material through the practical approach. The majority of the exercise participants would therefore like to have the opportunity to participate in further VR exercises as part of their studies. In particular, the participation in the VR exercise in presence and thus the own VR experience in the VR mine is desired by the students.
