Learn how to write a review of literature

Many students at a certain stage of their studies face a literature review.  Creating a literature review can be part of the assignments of graduate students. It is especially true when they prepare a dissertation or journal article. Literature reviews are also used in a research proposal or prospectus (a document that is written before a student formally begins writing a dissertation).  Many students may be tempted to save time by limiting their review to the last decade, but it is no time for failure.

Meta has shared a realistic perspective on opening new opportunities for people with the Metaverse shift. In a new whitepaper from Analysis Group, in partnership with Meta, the Metaverse is defined as “a set of interconnected digital spaces, including immersive XR experiences that combine the digital and physical worlds, in which individuals can easily move between different spaces and experiences as well as interact and collaborate with other people who are not in the same physical space.”

 

Meta also chose to clarify that the Metaverse may never come to fruition the exact way it is being envisioned, however, it will materialize slowly and will need mass adoption, which would help it take a proper shape as a platform.

 

Moreover, the creation of the Metaverse will require new rules and frameworks in collaboration with different people and companies over time, including institutions like the US-based National Institute of Standards and Technology or international multi-stakeholder organizations like the Internet Engineering Task Force or the World Wide Web Consortium.
