A daily scrum meeting is a useful, short, and informal communication activity for agile software development teams typically conducted at the same location and time, most likely before lunch. This meeting allows regular exchange of information among software team members starting with reporting the status yesterday activities to today’s tasks and ultimately obstacles that they did encounter.

Virtual reality is a technology medium that allows an interface to individuals to interact with sensory rich computer-generated world, which might also include virtual and real individuals where participants could gain virtual experiences on real matters. Social interactions with virtual personas are considered more engaging and fun especially for training in software engineering concepts.
