A Virtual World Workshop Environment for Learning Agile Software Development Techniques
Parsons, David; Stockdale, Rosemary
International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments, v3 n1 Article 3 p37-54 2012
Multi-User Virtual Environments (MUVEs) are the subject of increasing interest for educators and trainers. This article reports on a longitudinal project that seeks to establish a virtual agile software development workshop hosted in the Open Wonderland MUVE, designed to help learners to understand the basic principles of some core agile software development techniques. The authors take a design-based research approach that allows for cycles of learning and reflection that has enabled following an iterative path of development through two major iterations. The authors trace the research path followed from the real world workshop to its virtual incarnation, describing the design philosophy and the constructed virtual artefacts. The authors conclude by reflecting on the insights into learner perceptions and practical implementations gained from building and evaluating the virtual workshop.
