Fall - ITEC 8133 Learning in 3D Multiuser Virtual Environments "3D MUVEs can be defined as a networked desktop virtual reality in which users move and interact in 3-D simulated spaces," (Omale, et.al., 2009) Definitions "A virtual world is an online, persistent, interactive environment accessible by many users simultaneously," (Dass, et.al., 2011) Avatar to engage user or participant - Visual represenation but also a psychological immersion

Training worlds (e.g., OLIVE)
Mirror worlds (e.g., Google Earth) Purposes "Serve to motivate learners to engage in purposeful educational inquiries without losing interest or sidestepping intended learning goals," (Omale, et.al., 2009) 3D MUVEs & Education Provide highly collaborative, immersive environments that promote student and instructor interactions Research shown students felt empowered with customized avatars (Omale, et.al., 2009) Rooted in constructivism Pedagogical Approaches Problem-based learning Action learning Experiential learning Active learning Collaborative learning Most popular educational 3D MUVE
