A Framework for the Use of Immersive Virtual Reality in Learning Environments
Keywords:virtual reality, instructional design, immersive virtual reality, pedagogical framework
Immersive Virtual Reality (iVR) technologies can enrich teaching and learning environments, but their use is often technology-driven and instructional con-cepts are missing. The design of iVR-technology-supported learning environ-ments should base on both, an evidence-based educational model as well as on features specific to iVR. Therefore, the article provides a framework for the use of iVR in learning environments based on the Cognitive Theory of Multi-media Learning (CTML). It outlines how iVR learning environments could and should be designed based on current knowledge from research on Multimedia Learning.
