#dl09 Creating and Designing 3D Immersive Learning Simulations

Dr. Allen Partridge presenting

Second Life makes learning 3D easier and faster.

Immersive learning is moving towards mobile (cell phones).

Immersive learning simulations (ILS) challenges:
Reduces the efficacy of direct instruction
Introduces technological barriers

New tools are collasping the link between the learner’s demand and the actual creation of ILS

Dr. Partridge’s students are designing an ILS of the registration process at their university. I wonder if we could create something at CareFirst for new hires that is immersive.

Dr. Partridge had a YouTube channel called Virtually Human shows tutorials how to use various ILS software.

Second Life has an island called Research Island which looks at the outcomes of ILS.
