Virtual Reality = real time immersion and interaction

The particularity of the Cyber-Classroom method is the user’s immersion in a VR learning environment.

This offers a new learning experience: a “Virtual User Experience” – the user’s experience in a digital reality visualized in stereo 3D reality.

The “Virtual Reality (VR)” is a digital learning environment, generated by means of computer technology. It transmits diverse stimuli via its interfaces to stimulate all senses of the user. Due to depth perception and its interactive handling users feel completely integrated into the VR learning environment of our Cyber-Classroom. The user or users can move intuitively within this Virtual Reality and can explore or change objects.

Processes that can not be followed in reality can be visualized in 3D, for instance when certain procedures are too quickly or are completely invisible as for example airstreams or magnetic fields. Virtual Reality is the core technology on which our Cyber-Classroom's method of teaching and learning is based.

Indicators are:

  • the highest possible level of immersion
  • real interaction opportunities and
  • fast processing and visualization of objects and scenes (real time)

Virtual Learning Reality is generated in Cyberspace by combining these three characteristics.

Performance improvement through visual means and incentives by games

Research results of the study by Ann Bamford:

  • Not only the concentration and participation in the lessons significantly improved but also the test results of the students in 3D classes.
  • The teachers said that the understanding was more profound in the 3D groups.
  • Teachers and students suggested creative ways to successfully integrate 3D in the curriculum.
  • Teachers were convinced that 3D animation enabled them to convey the knowledge better and quicker than with traditional teaching techniques.

"One major advantage is the easy and intuitive handling that enables the students to  work on subject matter independently and have a look at chemical bonds or the processes in a galvanic cell in 3D. "
