Chandrasekera, Tilanka; Fernando, Kinkini; Puig, Luis – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2019
The purpose of this research was to explore the use of virtual reality (VR) in early design studios. In this research project, two different types of Head-Mounted Display (HMD) systems were used. One type of HMD provided six degrees of freedom and the other HMD provided three degrees of freedom. The research findings provide comparison on the…

Domingo, Jelia R.; Bradley, Elizabeth Gates – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2018
The purpose of this study was to ascertain student perceptions of the use and value of three-dimensional virtual environments. A grounded theory approach was used to gather and examine data. Just over half of student participants reported positive experiences. However, most experienced technical difficulties. Despite the technical challenges of…

O'Connor, Eileen A. – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2018
Within an online science teacher education course, an important although secondary goal was to prepare students for a high-stakes licensure portfolio at some time after course completion. Thus, various communication technologies including synchronous virtual reality meetings and asynchronous student self-created video commentaries were interwoven…

Christopoulos, Athanasios; Conrad, Marc; Shukla, Mitul – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2018
This research links learner engagement with interactions when Hybrid Virtual Learning models are used. Various aspects have been considered, such as learners' prior experiences related to virtual worlds, their preconceptions regarding their use as a learning tool, and the impact that instructional designers' choices have on enhancing the…

Johnston, Elizabeth; Olivas, Gerald; Steele, Patricia; Smith, Cassandra; Bailey, Liston – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2018
New virtual reality (VR) applications for education appear frequently in the marketplace but rarely contain explicit pedagogies. The research objective of this study was to identify and categorize principles and practices of pedagogy that are evident but not articulated in selected VR applications for education. Analysis of public content for the…

Dib, Hazar Nicholas; Adamo-Villani, Nicoletta – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2016
We describe the development and evaluation of a virtual steel sculpture for engineering education. A good connection design requires the engineer to have a solid understanding of the mechanics and steel behavior. To help students better understand various connection types, many schools have acquired steel sculptures. A steel sculpture is a…

Bowers, K. Westmoreland – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2014
The purpose of this study was to identify constructivist concepts that are important to student-perceived learning outcomes in college courses that use a virtual world, such as Second Life, as an educational tool. Identification of these concepts will help instructors to make the best use of their course design efforts in mediated environments.…

Kwon, Seolim; Lara, Miguel; Enfield, Jake; Frick, Theodore – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2013
Conducting an iterative usability testing, a set of prompts used as a form of instructional support was developed in order to facilitate the comprehension of the diffusion of innovations theory (Rogers, 2003) in a simulation game called the Diffusion Simulation Game (DSG) (Molenda & Rice, 1979). The six subjects who participated in the study…
