It is very difficult to determine a universal minimum internet speed required to run the Immerse VLEP as every city, town, and country may vary in internet reliability.
We strongly recommend that the strongest internet connection is used to run the Immerse VLEP.
That being said, we have received reports from school partners who were able to run successful VR lessons only with 10-15 Mbps (mega bites per second) with a total of six concurrent users (six students and one instructor).
If lessons are delivered remotely, lower internet speeds are sufficient capable of running the Immerse VLEP because every user will be on their own internet connection.
If you plan to implement Immerse across multiple campuses, we recommend beginning at campus sites with the best possible internet conditions. Testing can then be conducted at sites with slower internet speeds to ensure the VLEP functions satisfactorily.
If you plan to run a VR Lab (Conversation Club Pilot) on your campus, you might be able to get away with slightly lower connectivity, because the Pilot only normally includes 4 students (less students = less connection load/loading time)
Very slow internet speeds can result in increased lag time and delay in voice chat. If lag occurs and you experience a delayed audio, your internet may be too weak to run VR lessons with the VLEP.
Internet Connection Speed
Required (minimum speed) : 10 to 15 Mbps
Optimal (best speed) : 25+ Mbps
