Abstract: Over the past decade, English for Specific Purposes (ESP) lecturers in Cyprus have been navigating through a plethora of technological tools in order to adapt and harness the capabilities of such tools for enhancing the ESP learning environment in tertiary education. As technology progresses and becomes more affordable, multiple new digital tools have become available for educational use. Such a new tool is Virtual Reality (VR). However, prior to embedding Virtual Reality, the authors believe that it is necessary for the ESP lecturer to capture students’ perception regarding this tool. This paper aims to explore Fine Arts students’ perception of VR by using the VR application “Tilt Brush” in a first-year Fine Arts ESP course. “Tilt Brush” will foster immersion in an authentic Fine Arts virtual context.
