What is a Virtual World?
• Wikipedia:
 computer-based simulated environment
 may be populated by many users
 each user can create its own avatar
 users can simultaneously and users can simultaneously and
independently explore the virtual world
 users participate in its activities and
communicate with each other
An avatar is a graphical (humanoid)
representation of a user.
Why virtual reality ?
 The virtual reality is being more and more used in the
education, allowing the student to find out, to explore and to
build his own knowledge.
 The constant evolution of the technology is taking the The constant evolution of the technology is taking the
education to use new ways, much more attractive to the
students, making possible the use of new tools, leading to an
evolution of the teaching process.
 Virtual Reality takes an important place in this evolution.
Designing a virtual world is a challenging task that opens almost
endless possibilities for developers. Within the technological
framework, a designer with a creative imagination can do anything in
the virtual world.
What is the main reason the users are
attracted to these virtual places?
There are three critical attributes of effectively designed virtual
worlds shaped by the experience of many designers, developers,
researchers and users:
 Thematic design of space
 Promotion of presence
 Awareness of the unique qualities of human behavior in online
social environments
Why virtual worlds ?
Virtual worlds are becoming a major technology for teaching,
learning, research and collaboration.
Logically, the course creators/teachers/instructors should:
• define the pedagogical outcomes and select the
appropriate pedagogical approaches
• emphasize the learning content using the best of the 3D• emphasize the learning content using the best of the 3D
technology
• stimulate the students’ interactions and support the
learning communities
• adapt the learning environments so that the pedagogical
outcomes can be achieved
• analyze the process to discover those design principles that
work best and can benefit future development projects
 The easiness of acquiring knowledge, skills or cognition
while playing increases interest in using this kind of
learning approach for people.
 The opportunities are that the students can both learn
Why virtual worlds ?
 The opportunities are that the students can both learn
and have fun while playing specially designed games,
while it is also a good way to relax, with many productive
results.
14
How can we construct a Virtual World?
• You should
 choose a software tool for creating a VW
environment (e.g. Second Life,
OpenSimulator, CyWorld, ActiveWorlds)
 make a structure of your world (specify make a structure of your world (specify
the number and the location of “islands”
or “regions”)
 format the external view of islands
 create appropriate “objects” in the VW
15
What objects does an educational Virtual World contain?
• Educational VW objects
 Auditoriums
 Meeting rooms
 Libraries
 Media rooms Media rooms
 Displays
 Laboratories
 3D objects related to the educational topics
 3D simulations of processes or machine
functions

What other learning materials could be used?
• Learning materials
 Text-based graphical presentations
 Advanced 2D simulations
 Online tests
Formal, non-formal and informal learning in VW
Formal learning is typically provided by a training institution, in a
structured form (in terms of learning objectives, learning time or
learning support) and it is leading to a certification.
Non-formal education and training: education and training which
takes place outside the formal system, either on a regular or
intermittent basis.
Informal learning: learning resulting from daily life activities
related to work, family or leisure. Informal learning is part of non-
formal learning.
The new challenge is learning inside a virtual environment. This is
already possible due to the work of many programmers and
Internet Communities who develop such Virtual Worlds.
Now it’s possible to attend virtual lectures, discussions, exams or
online interactive laboratories using 3D experiences.
21
• Self-learning: no teacher, no guidance
(informal learning)
• Class-based synchronous learning: virtual
class, distance learning, teacher-avatar directs

22
• Class-based asynchronous learning: virtual class,
distance learning, instruction-based learning (a
student-centered approach that emphasizes the
importance of peer-to-peer interactions) This
approach combines self-study with asynchronous

approach combines self-study with asynchronous
interactions to promote learning.
• Blended learning: real class, activities in the 3D
VW are used during teaching.

  • 10. Why virtual reality ?  The virtual reality is being more and more used in the education, allowing the student to find out, to explore and to build his own knowledge.  The constant evolution of the technology is taking the The constant evolution of the technology is taking the education to use new ways, much more attractive to the students, making possible the use of new tools, leading to an evolution of the teaching process.  Virtual Reality takes an important place in this evolution.
  • 11. Designing a virtual world is a challenging task that opens almost endless possibilities for developers. Within the technological framework, a designer with a creative imagination can do anything in the virtual world. What is the main reason the users are attracted to these virtual places? There are three critical attributes of effectively designed virtual worlds shaped by the experience of many designers, developers, researchers and users:  Thematic design of space  Promotion of presence  Awareness of the unique qualities of human behavior in online social environments
  • 12. Why virtual worlds ? Virtual worlds are becoming a major technology for teaching, learning, research and collaboration. Logically, the course creators/teachers/instructors should: • define the pedagogical outcomes and select the appropriate pedagogical approaches • emphasize the learning content using the best of the 3D• emphasize the learning content using the best of the 3D technology • stimulate the students’ interactions and support the learning communities • adapt the learning environments so that the pedagogical outcomes can be achieved • analyze the process to discover those design principles that work best and can benefit future development projects
  • 13.  The easiness of acquiring knowledge, skills or cognition while playing increases interest in using this kind of learning approach for people.  The opportunities are that the students can both learn Why virtual worlds ?  The opportunities are that the students can both learn and have fun while playing specially designed games, while it is also a good way to relax, with many productive results.
  • 14. 14 How can we construct a Virtual World? • You should  choose a software tool for creating a VW environment (e.g. Second Life, OpenSimulator, CyWorld, ActiveWorlds)  make a structure of your world (specify make a structure of your world (specify the number and the location of “islands” or “regions”)  format the external view of islands  create appropriate “objects” in the VW

  • 20. Formal, non-formal and informal learning in VW Formal learning is typically provided by a training institution, in a structured form (in terms of learning objectives, learning time or learning support) and it is leading to a certification. Non-formal education and training: education and training which takes place outside the formal system, either on a regular or intermittent basis. Informal learning: learning resulting from daily life activities related to work, family or leisure. Informal learning is part of non- formal learning. The new challenge is learning inside a virtual environment. This is already possible due to the work of many programmers and Internet Communities who develop such Virtual Worlds. Now it’s possible to attend virtual lectures, discussions, exams or online interactive laboratories using 3D experiences.
