Social work emphasized the understanding of person in environment perspective in assessment of client’s family situation. Yet, it would be difficult to bring a class of students to visit a subdivided unit. It would be burdensome for the residents to receive a number of visits. The use of VR technology provides an experiential way of understanding the living milieu of marginal group reducing burdens of residents to receive visits from students, saving time and traveling costs. Using VR technology combining flipped classroom format enhanced teaching effectiveness and participation of students.

(1) Flipped classroom: VR videos would be used as background materials for students to watch at their own time before the class preparing students for class learning how to conduct case assessment and understand the needs and problems encountered by residents.
(2) Live discussion: In class, another VR video of the same case would be utilized in class for further analysis enabling students to have a more in depth understanding of client’s situation and learn how to conduct case formulation.
(3) E learning assignment: A second case study using animation format would be used for students to apply what they have learnt in class. Google classroom combining google form would be used to assess whether students can utilize the knowledge being taught in class.
Exploratory study finds out that students enjoy the VR learning, consider the approach stimulating and engaging, helping them to learn case assessment and understanding needs and problems of marginal groups more effectively.
