Formal and Informal Collaborative Learning in 3D Virtual Campuses

  1. 1. Formal and Informal Collaborative Learning in 3D Virtual Campuses Mikhail Fominykh and Ekaterina Prasolova-Førland Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway Peter Leong University of Hawaii-Manoa, USA The Sixth International Conference on Collaboration Technologies August 27–29, 2012 Sapporo, Japan1
  2. 2. 3D Virtual Worlds and Virtual Campuses o Why 3D Virtual Worlds – Three dimensional – Sense of presence – Collaboration – Visualization and creativity – 3D content manipulation o Why Virtual Campuses – Authentic environment – Learning tools and facilities2
  3. 3. Formal and Informal Learning in 3D Virtual Campuses o Formal – Blended or virtual courses – Lectures, discussions, exams, and more o Informal – Virtual tours, scavenger hunts, role playing, and games – Rich interactions, authentic content and culture, identity play, simulation, community presence – Visualization, and content production3
  4. 4. Case Study across Two Virtual Campuses o RQ – How to design a 3D virtual campus? o Goal – Develop implications for virtual campus design to facilitate formal and informal learning o Analysis framework – Learner – Place – Artifact4
  5. 5. Study settings o Participants – 37 Students (Cooperation Technology course at NTNU) – Presenters and attendees o Activities – 3D Visualization of the major curriculum topics – Two events in two virtual campuses o Observation – Design of Virtual Campus facilities for different learning modes5
  6. 6. Virtual Campus of NTNU o Facilities – Reconstructions of campus buildings – 3D educational visualizations (student projects) – Virtual Science Fair – Meeting and working places o Activities – Virtual tours – Cooperation technology course projects/role plays – Research project presentations – International seminars6
  7. 7. Virtual Campus of NTNU7
  8. 8. Role-playing presentation of a student project8
  9. 9. Role-playing presentation of a student project9
  10. 10. Cooperation seminar in the virtual campus of NTNU o Formal learning – Seminar (five virtual presentations of EU projects) – Question-and-answer session o Results + Geographical independence + The novelty and excitement + The comfort of use for the lecturer and the audience – Technical problems – Attention distractions both inside and outside the virtual environment10
  11. 11. Cooperation seminar in the virtual campus of NTNU11
  12. 12. Implications for facilitating formal learning in 3D virtual campuses o Learner – More active use of the avatar, such as moving around, body language, visual effects, changing appearance o Place – Minimalistic appearance to avoid disruption of attention – Structure facilitating better deployment of the 3D space and flexible moving and grouping of avatars and tools o Artifact – Integrating social tools normally used by the students – In-world tools for interactivity, e.g. quizzes and polling12
  13. 13. Virtual Campus of COE UHM o Facilities – Reconstructions of campus buildings – Authentic Hawaiian places and simulations – New fictitious social spaces o Activities – Courses/seminars – Conference sessions – Virtual graduation ceremonies13
  14. 14. Virtual Campus of COE UHM14
  15. 15. Wist-Everly Hall complex15
  16. 16. Holomua Learning Area16
  17. 17. Dockside coffee shop17
  18. 18. Official launch of COE SL Island18
  19. 19. Virtual Graduation Ceremonies19
  20. 20. Guided tour to the virtual campus of COE UHM o Informal learning – Virtual tour (guided tour) – Feedback in student blogs o Results – 11 themes including general impressions, campus atmosphere & infrastructure, learning, experimental teaching, Hawaiian culture, navigation problems, etc. – Majority felt immersive Hawaiian sense of place20
  21. 21. Guided tour to the virtual campus of COE UHM21
  22. 22. Implications for facilitating informal learning: 3 major themes o Appreciation for strong Hawaiian sense of place o Recognition of need for social spaces o Frustration with navigation problems22
  23. 23. Implications for facilitating informal learning in 3D virtual campuses o Learner – Improve navigation - teleportation & thematic areas – Spaces for social & community building o Place – Appearance - replica & fictitious places – Structure - buildings connected by paths & teleports – Roles - demonstration/exhibition, social/workplace, information space, virtual stage o Artifact – Some SL tutorials & Hawaiian-theme artifacts – Need to develop tools to support course activities23
  24. 24. Future Work o Formal and informal educational activities in 3D virtual campuses – Important to sustain a balance between formal and informal learning – Adjusting for specific formal or informal approaches in both academic and corporate settings – Exploring and extending implications to apply for virtual campuses, classrooms, offices, conference facilities, and other types of environments developed on different platforms24
