Design and Evaluation of a Learner-Centric Immersive Learning Environment for Physics Education

  1. 1. Design and Evaluation of a Learner- Centric Immersive Learning Environment for Physics Education Institute for Information Systems and Computer Media (IICM) Faculty of Informatics – Graz University of Technology, Austria Johanna Pirker, Christian Gütl, John Winston Belcher, Philip H. Bailey SouthCHI Conference 2nd July, 2013

  6. 6. Technology-Enabled Active Learning © 2013 - Johanna Pirker24/09/2013 6 • Approach • Collaborative Learning • Mini lectures • Hands-on experiments • Simulations & Visualizations • Quizzes and discussions • Special Designed Classroom • Small working groups • Shared Computers • Desktop Experiments • $ 1.5 Mio / classroom http://mit.edu/jbelcher/www/categories/education/index.htm
  7. 7. Virtual TEAL World - Motivation © 2013 - Johanna Pirker24/09/2013 7 • Motivation • On-campus extension to Prepare, re-visit, reflect • Affordable Environment (TEAL classroom $1.5 MIO each) • Distance learning experience for • Geographically dispersed learning groups • Part-time students • Handicapped • MOOC (Massive open online course) extension as Social motivator and Collaboration possibilities • Main Issues of VWs • Technical Demands • Technical Know-How • User Acceptance
  8. 8. Virtual TEAL World - Motivation © 2013 - Johanna Pirker24/09/2013 8 • Design • Focus on advantages of VWs in comparison to conventional E-Learning Systems • 3D, Immersion, Collaboration, Presence, Active Participation,… • Reduce issues of VWs by good Design (Technical demands, Technical know-how, User Acceptance) • Raise the acceptance (Interactivity, Collaboration, Assessability) • Avoid steep learning curves • Usability of Virtual World Environment and In-World Tools
  9. 9. Workflow © 2013 - Johanna Pirker24/09/2013 9 Virtual TEAL Model Implementation of the required components Preparation & Evaluation of a pilot environment Raise the acceptance • Interactivity • Collaboration • Assessability Avoid steep learning curves • Usability • Adaptation and improvement of the existing TEALsim-Module • Creation of the Concept Question- Module • Creation of a Web- Interface as link to the Concept Question-Module • Faraday’s Law course • Two experiments with two stakeholder groups

  13. 13. Evaluation (1/3) Objectives • Usability of VTW and in-world tools • Learning progress within the Faraday‘s Law scenario and it‘s assessability • Motivational aspects of students, such as interactivity and collaboration Setup • 2 experiments with 2 stakeholder groups • 2 physics experts with pedagogical background • 8 students • Pre-questionnaire with demographical data • Experiment (Learning roundtrip) • Post-questionnaire • Experience, usability (SUS), motivation (CES),.. © 2013 - Johanna Pirker24/09/2013 13
  14. 14. Evaluation (2/3) Learning Progress • Experiment: Students learned through discussion and learning content • Self-assessment: Faraday‘s law (M=1.625 SD=0.86); 7/8 learned something new Collaborative activities • Students likes „solving questions with other people“ • 3/8 students changes their answer after the discussion Assessability • Both SHGs were satisfied with the assessability (M=2.5; SD=0.92) „It is similar to real life group assignments. You never know who contributed to the assignment“ © 2013 - Johanna Pirker24/09/2013 14
  15. 15. Evaluation (3/3) Interactivity • M=1.6 (SD=0.66) „Such a playful animation can motivate also students, which are not really interested in the topic“ Usability • 8/10 SUS score 70+; Avg 73.89 (SD=22.81) • TEALsim-Module M=2. (SD=0.5) Motivation • According to CES © 2013 - Johanna Pirker24/09/2013 15
  16. 16. Conclusion & Future Work © 2013 - Johanna Pirker24/09/2013 16 Current and future Work • Further improvements (Performance, Usability, Interactivity,… ) • Integration to LMS such as Moodle • Integration of a game-based approach • Further user studies Conclusions • Motivational and acceptance issues can be minimize • Interactivity, Collaboration, Assessability • Technical issues will remain the next years (ref. Gartner’s Hype Cycle)
