Virtual Worlds

Description

A virtual world creates a real-life education and/or training scenario. There is no limit to the variety of real-life photorealistic simulations you can create, therefore there is no limit of potentiation scenarios. Education scenarios can be built to teach concepts, problems or issues found in real life. Training scenarios can be built specific to an organisations training need by providing on-the-job tasks. A 3D character explains the virtual world around them. The virtual world is built specifically with visual features that support the learner to achieve education and/or training learning outcomes.

NOTE: It is common practice not to animate legs in a virtual world.

Importance

The biggest advantage of a virtual world is there is no limit to your imagination! Which means there is no limit to the real-life education and/or training scenario you can create—any topic is possible. Virtual worlds can enhance learning outcomes because a real-life scenario with a sensory and/or interactive experience provides the user with relevance, familiarity, and motivation. A learner is more likely to learn because they are experiencing the learning task. A real-life connection promotes student learning because the learning is an authentic learning task (not fake).
