With emerging technologies and extended reality (XR) technology on the rise in logistics education programs, we evaluated the perceptions of Thai undergraduate students and faculty members on XR learning experiences using an XR Literacy Framework. The XR Literacy Framework was adapted from NMC Horizon Project’s digital literacy framework and informed by the research work of Pehlivanis, Papagianni, and Styliadi (2004), and DHL’s Key Developments and Implications (2019).
Questions focused on perspectives on XR usage in logistics management undergraduate programs in Ladkrabang, Bangkok, Thailand in the key areas of training levels and confidence in application of XR technology. All research constructs were measured using multiple-item 5-point Likert scales and target respondents were evaluated in terms of XR for logistics management familiarity. The data was collected from a judgment sample of respondents on a voluntary basis and analyzed with SPSS software.
A single t-test survey was performed to assess if there was a statistically significant difference between the sample qualified and the overall population. In both cases of training and confidence in application of XR technology, levels were deemed to be low.
Following responses on identified critical points, we recommend further study on increasing XR training in undergraduate logistics education programs and building confidence in practical application of XR technology.
