Abstract

The use of immersive environments like virtual worlds has increased in the field of education. The scope and capabilities of these environments are interesting, so are the challenges associated in using them. The prime concern for using these environments in the education sector is the lack of ease with which authoring of learning activities can be done in them. On the other hand, Learning Design engines such as LAMS currently offer much easier authoring for 2D environments. This project proposes an approach to deploy the design sequence created in a 2D authoring interface such as LAMS into a 3D virtual world like Open Wonderland. The aim of the project is to ease the difficulty of authoring in 3D environments as well as provide a unique attempt to integrate Learning Design into any virtual world.
