Learning in Virtual Environments: A Theoretical Framework and Considerations for Design.
Winn, William
Educational Media International, v36 n4 p271-79 Dec 1999
Discusses the use of virtual environments (VEs) in teaching and learning. Examines the characteristics of effective VE in learning environments, looking at the added value produced by immersion, whereby students learn directly rather than through difficult symbol systems. Many apprehensions about VE are corrected, and the conclusions drawn are pertinent for use of VEs in teaching and training. (Contains 47 references.) (Author/AEF)
