I can’t imagine virtual reality playing a main role in an encyclopedia.

But I see a lot of possibilities in creating learning materials.

When people enroll a real live learning program they are paying for 3
things: For acquiring knowledge; for somebody (or some process) guiding and
motivating them; and for a certificate crediting the knowledge they have

Virtual reality certainly could help in creating virtual environments
guiding and motivating people in the process of acquiring knowledge.
