Description & Coverage
Description:

Immersive learning has grown in popularity with the development of open-source immersive 3D learning spaces. Those in e-learning have been working to find ways to capitalize on immersive learning through simulations, digital kiosks, live virtual events, live interactivity, instructor-facilitated learning, AI-driven robots, and hyper-realistic experiences.

Virtual Immersive and 3D Learning Spaces: Emerging Technologies helps push the conceptual and applied boundaries of virtual immersive learning. Virtual immersive spaces bring with them plenty of promise, of sensory information-rich learning experiences that will enable a much wider range of experiential learning and training—delivered to computer desktops, augmented reality spaces, digital installations, and mobile projective devices.  This work explains how these spaces may be exploited for effective learning in terms of the technologies, pedagogical strategies, and directions.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • 3d Collaborative Interfaces
  • Designing and Building 3d Immersive Virtual Learning
  • Immersive Language Learning
  • Learning Assignments in Virtual Worlds
  • Legal and Ethical Aspects of Teaching in Selected Social Virtual Worlds
  • Non-Visual Spatial Learning
  • Scaffolding Discovery Learning In 3d Virtual Environments
  • Serious Games for Healthcare Education
  • Signing Avatars
  • Virtual Worlds
Reviews & Statements

This collection of fifteen articles on learning and teaching in rich virtual environments presents recent research on the nexus of pedagogy and virtual worlds. The volume is divided into five sections beginning with an overview of immersive virtual environments, and covering topics in areas such as teaching strategies for the virtual world, the design of interactive learning environments, disability and accessibility in the virtual world and the possible risks and drawbacks of immersive learning strategies. ...
