Virtual Reality Hypermedia Design Frameworks for Science Instruction.
Maule, R. William; Oh, Byron; Check, Rosa
This paper reports on a study that conceptualizes a research framework to aid software design and development for virtual reality (VR) computer applications for instruction in the sciences. The framework provides methodologies for the processing, collection, examination, classification, and presentation of multimedia information within hyperlinked VR environments. Traditional teaching and VR are referenced. The analysis also provides a framework to help assess whether children can use VR to supplement their traditional education and learn concepts in science, and thus seeks to help justify VR instruction as a viable supplement for standard teaching methods in science. Topics discussed include: VR environments, including immersive VR and VR modeling language (VRML); VR science instructional designs, including science instruction, and VR and science; and VR hypermedia component integration frameworks, including VR and classroom integration, VR and learning objectives, and VR and hypermedia components. Contains 19 references. (DLS)
