Virtual Technology and Education: A Collaborative Pilot Case
Stewart, Barbara L.; Ezell, Shirley; DeMartino, Darrell; Rifai, Rana; Gatterson, Beverly
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v7 n4 p377-385 2006
This case explored the use of a collaborative team to develop a virtual course component to increase educational experience. As students continue to engage in recreational video game activities, incorporation of such applications into their learning environments becomes important to allow them to connect and interact with course content in a manner to which they are increasingly accustomed in daily living. One module of a general education core course, Family Ecosystems, was selected for the incorporation of a virtual component. Project stages included curriculum and technical design and interface, pilot testing, and evaluation.
