Virtual Reality as a Tool in the Education
Piovesan, Sandra Dutra; Passerino, Liliana Maria; Pereira, Adriana Soares
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA) (Madrid, Spain, Oct 19-21, 2012)
The virtual reality is being more and more used in the education, enabling the student to find out, to explore and to build his own knowledge. This paper presents an Educational Software for presence or distance education, for subjects of Formal Language, where the student can manipulate virtually the target that must be explored, analyzed and studied. With a simple interface, with easy comprehension and using, this paper presents an educational software where the student manipulates the objects that will be studied in 3D, getting easier the study of concepts and theories about Automatons, Regular Expressions and Minimization of Automatons interacting directly with the object in 3D. To the design of the automatons, the software uses tolls in 3D, as the Blender and the VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) and to the publishing of a page on the internet it is integrated the Program Language PHP (Hypertext Pre Processor). The results reached with the use of the developed software show the attributes that make the ideal Virtual Reality for situations of research and learning taking the discipline as a reference of the classroom to the computer labs and making more interesting to the student, making the learning easy.
