Due to the advent in technology, the changing needs in various industries and the fact that there seems to be a disconnect in what institutions are grooming students with, industries have in turn suffered from inadequate skilled labour. Meanwhile institutions are priding themselves in the number of graduates they churn out. To this effect there are shortcomings in the academic system as they fail to equip their graduates with skills and readiness to adapt to the work environment and industries constant changing demands. Immersive learning offers lower cost and cuts down the time required to teach the necessary knowledge in order to bridge the skill gap between the learning grounds and the market place. It will address the gap between graduate’s ability and employers expectations of an organisation.
