Learning with involvement of haptic technologies can provide advanced opportunities in digital learning. Especially over the course of the pandemic the value of digital learning solutions became more obvious. There are attempts with various technologies, which can enhance the quality of learning processes and refine the learning results. However, it should be remembered that the sense of touch is not contained in all of them, even though it might be helpful, e.g., in the medical field. To show how haptic technology may improve the digital learning solutions, this paper will briefly define haptic learning and analyze some haptic learning use cases using the Haptic Learning Model of Dörr et al. [2].

We describe haptic learning as the sum of all learning processes which use haptic interactions to enhance the effectiveness and/or efficiency of learning process. In this paper, haptic technology use cases which are not directly related to learning or do not give any haptic feedback to the learners are excluded.
