Previously, he studied psychology at the University of Bern, where he earned his PhD at the Institute of Cognitive Psychology. In the course of his research career, Dr. Moser developed an increasing fascination for the numerous new possibilities that virtual reality (VR) opens as a learning technology. As the leader of several VR-related research projects at the FFHS, he investigates the potential and limits of virtual learning environments. He is especially concerned with the question of whether VR is suitable as a collaborative learning and working platform.
